this is a copy of the backup and restore software. It will help to either
use the drive for
backups, or read backups created by this program. There are several versions
of this,
which support progressivly more versions of the hardware.

There are the following variants of the hardware.

Drive Qic2 interface, 50 pin ribbon, controller, qic2 to qic 24 (or
whatever), AT adapter, Qic24 to AT bus
Drive Qic 24, Adapter qic 24 to AT bus (this is a full length AT card)

there are variants of the second where the controller is 2/3 length, but
still AT to qic 24.
There is also a series of drives from 60mb, 120mb, 125mb 150mb,
which have similar base controller boards, but different firmware.

I have not seen 250 and 625 mb in the qic format, but only scsi. the 60,
150, are also
available in scsi.

You might want to hunt down a drive compatable with your tapes and do scsi,
as there are
far more tools that will read raw tapes from aspi than from qic 2.
