recover backups made bu win 2000

I have some backups I made while using win 2000 pro, and now I need to recover one of them, however windows XP Pro does not seem to reconise the backup.
Any Suggestions ?

most of ms backup progs will only read their own files. Is it possible for you to either install win 2k to get the file then save in text form for use in XP? or borrow/use someone elses win2k pc?

Howard64-Thanks for the reply.

Unfortunatly,all my friends now have win XP or Vista, so this option is not available

one of my neighbours has a win2k pc if you do not have anything seriously private you could upload it to me and I could try running it for you.

I,ve managed to find an earier version of the information I wanted on a CD I made about a month ago, it means I will have to re-enter about 6 pages of data (Luckily it is on a paper printout), but it could be a lot worse.
