Steve, how can you tell that the missing computer was backed up using XTree? In the past I've seen floppy disks marked "Archived with XTree" that had regular .ARC or .ZIP files on them. These can be read by many other archiver, or compression, utilities.

The only other (seemingly remote) possibility I can see here on the XTree Fan Page is the "Configuration Backup & Restore" utility of XTreeTools for Networks (see > This could save the Netware bindery, system files, trustee rights, login scripts, and printer configuration data files to floppies, hard disk, or network drives.

If the missing computer was a Netware server, and you need to recover this type of information, then you might need a Netware expert. I doubt that you'll be able to find a copy of XTreeTools for Networks to restore this.
