BE can open / restore files

BE can open / restore files from other product's backups provided they use the same format while storing the data. For egs, BE and ArcServe use the format (MTF) while writing to tape and so BE can restore from ArcServe backups. BE and NTbackup also use the same format (bkf) and so BE can also restore from NTbackups.

However, SSR writes using a format which is not recognized by BE and hence it cannot read/restore from these backups.
