Re: Clear my Doubt.

Not completely sure whether I understand your question. If you're wondering whether you can backup your unix/linux filesystems on a tape-drive that's in a windows machine, that would depend on the backup tool used.

Network based backup tools (veritas netbackup, legato, ..) can do this without a problem: each machine to be backed up runs a client which connects to your backup server over the network.

Should your question be a different one, forgive me, and ignore my message.

Cheers,
Wout
