When you try to restore backups using MS-DOS 6.0 Microsoft Backup for Windows, you receive the following error message:

This backup set was created with the Norton Backup Version 1.0 for Microsoft and cannot be <retrieved> with Microsoft Backup. The Norton Backup can restore this backup set. Please contact Symantec for more information about Norton Backup.
NOTE: The word <retrieved> varies depending on the exact action taken.


This situation occurs if the backups you are trying to restore were made with MS-DOS 6.22 with compression turned on.


To work around this problem, either make new backups with compression turned off, or use MS-DOS 6.22 to restore the backup data.
