Windows NT Backup Restore Utility for Windows 7 and for Windows Server 2008 R2

If you have a backup made with the backup utility, NTBackup, that comes with Windows XP, but want to restore files from the backup on a Windows 7 system you have to download the Windows NT Backup Restore Utility for Windows 7 and for Windows Server 2008 R2 from Microsoft. The Windows NT Removable Storage Manager (RSM) is no longer included in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2, but this utility will allow you to restore files in a Windows .bkf backup file made with the backup utility on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 to computers that are running Windows 7 and Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2.

There are versions of the Update for Windows 7 (KB974674) utility for 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 7 as well as for all supported x64-based versions of Windows Server 2008 R2 and all supported IA-64-based versions of Windows Server 2008 R2.

The utility is distributed as an .MSU file, e.g. Windows6.1-KB974674-x86.msu for the 32-bit version for Windows XP. An .msu file is a Microsoft Update Stanalone Package file.
