Hello

I have made a backup with microsoft xp in a File with the extension bkf.
For this I used the Win XP Tools. Now, I have an other Computer with
Windows XP Home, and can't open it! How can I open this file? Which
programm does I need?

Thanks for your help!

It needs the same program that you used to create it: ntbackup.exe.

NTBackup which is not installed in Home. However on genuine MS XP CDRoms it available as a seperate install. Look. Type ntbackup in help for more help.

Look on the Windows XP Home installation CD in \MSFT\ValueADD\Ntbackup
folder. The installation file is ntbackup.msi. Double click that. If
you don't have it on the CD download ntbackup from here:
