Thanks, but I've been there already. Unless this is a very early
version (pre PCTools 4), it's nothing internally like Fastback or
PCTools backup. For one thing, both formats include in the first
sector, the name of the program and other detail of what created it.
Not so with this one. I suppose it's possible that there is a very very
early version of PC Backup that created it, but I haven't found it.
I was hoping that someone would recognize the formst. I'm surprised
that the oldskool group didn't evaluate Paul Mace's backup program from
the Mace utilities.
