Recovery from very old Veritas Simple Backup from 2004 ?

Would LOVE to get some files off of a 2 dvd backup from 2004 - most likely from a dell pc with windows 98.

Even if I need to buy and old pc with Win98 on it 

I have some newer pc's that I have tried to restore it to but no luck?

Would it help if I have the original disks?   I can find on ebay if needed -- it cam on the puple disks in the attached pic

Any feedback/ideas would be greatly apreciated!!!

 

thanks

  • Which application was used to create that backup ? Veritas System Recovery ? Which error is displayed when restore fails ?

      it's from 2004 and called "veritas simple backup" - the error message is not a readable disk

      I don't have the original sofware -- I am wondering if I bought it and then installed it on a pc if it would work

        I have a question. What is the file extention of backup data? Is it *.BKF?

        Regarding Veritas Simple Backup, it seems that it was a backup software for desktop. Veritas was not an owner for it in 2002. So we have no information now.
