How to restore Backup of 1 PC to another PC from Tape

Dear Friends,

Suppose of I have taken backup of some specific Data from my PC on a DDS Tape. Now I want that data to be restore on some other PC. How can I do that?.

As per tutorial provided, it seems that I can only restore data on the same PC from which Backup has been taken.

Can you people help me in this regard

Thanks

It depends on your backup application, but this
should always be possible.

What you need to do is make sure that the same application used to back up the data is installed on the new system. Then attach the tape drive to the new system. Then run a restore, usually picking an option that says something like, "restore to a different location".

But again -- the application itself will determine how exactly this is done.

Oh -- if you are running any of the network-aware backup applications, you can probably run a "restore to different location" from the original system, as long as the backup application has disk agents running on the target system. (but again... which application is very important in determining the steps)
