   The DOS version of RESTORE (which is the ONLY thing that will restore
data from a BACKUP) was notorious for trashing hard drives. I only tried it
a couple of times and it did trash every HD that I tried it on.

   As I already stated, this version simply never did anything. Even after
I told it to back up ONE file and left it for over an hour it was still
beating on my HD and SCSI tape but never copied the file.

 They've all had their bugs, but

   What's that? Buy a third party program?
