Like I said before
$ ./tito -x -f 169249.tape
fopen: Is a directory
$ bin/back10 -l -f 169249.tape | head
18-Nov-1858 00:00:00 <754> dsk:[1,1][3,700202].ufd
18-Nov-1858 00:00:00 <754> dsk:[1,1][3,700004].ufd
18-Nov-1858 00:00:00 <754> dsk:[1,1][3,700220].ufd
$ bin/back10 -x -f 169249.tape
that gets lots of files with names like 'dsk:[1,4]specdf525].mic'

$ sha1sum 169249.tape
This matches yours.
