# Anyone used mtftar? (converting Windows .bkf backup files to .tar)

(Sorry, I know this doesn't relate directly to an Ubuntu package.)

I've been looking for a utility to unpack Windows backup (*.bkf) files
on GNU/Linux, and the only thing I've found is mtftar from
http://gpl.internetconnection.net/
but it doesn't unpack into enough levels.

For example, if the .bkf really contains

C:\Documents and Settings\alice\My Documents\foo.doc
C:\Documents and Settings\bob\My Documents\bar.doc
C:\Documents and Settings\bob\My Documents\fubar.doc
...

(and I know it does have the full directory structure, because I
unpacked it on a Windows machine to check) the tar file produced by
mtftar flattens the tree down to one directory below the drive letter:

C:\Documents and Settings\foo.doc
C:\Documents and Settings\bar.doc
C:\Documents and Settings\fubar.doc
...

Has anyone else used this program, and perhaps figured out how to get
the full directory tree out?  Or can anyone recommend another utility?

Thanks,
