I've inherited an 8 mm QIC format tape that was written using an Exabyte
8500 5GB drive and tar (v4.0). I need to be able to extract files from
this tape and convert them to DOS and would like to know how I should
proceed. Obtaining hardware (i.e. an Exabyte or other drive capable of
physically reading this tape) isn't a problem, I just to need to come up
with a plan of action.
Could this be done with Linux or any other Intel UNIX, provided I supply
the drive? Any help at all would be appreciated.
