...anyways, Windows 7 is not

...anyways, Windows 7 is not supported as a media server for any version of Backup Exec. Best bet is to load a workstation with Windows XP and restore the *.bkf files with that. And this is all assuming you're using Backup Exec in the first place.

Thanks!

Hello Rosemarry, If you

Hello Rosemarry,

If you performed a backup with Backup Exec then all you need to do is to restore that .zip file.

Note:  Backup Exec is NOT a tool to recover corrupted .zip files. It is a backup/restore application. 

...is this a troll effort

...is this a troll effort like in he Online Backup section where everybody starts posting about zip recover solutions?

Not being funny...

...so this question has moved

...so this question has moved from being a query about how to restore a zip file to how to restore Windows XP *.bkf files?

I've seen this query on the Online Backup section too where people trolled their various non-Symantec products.

Are you asking a serious, legitimate question here?
