Read bkf files in Linux

mtftar is a utility that can read data stored in BKF files generated with Windows NTBackup program.

However, on Debian 9 in 2018, this code currently produces errors such as:

MTF error out of order mtftar (files before directory saw 4 while expecting limit of 0)

To avoid these error messages, download and make the version from here:

To search for files or folders:

mtftar < source.bkf | tar tvf - | grep SomeName

To extract files:

mtftar < source.bkf | tar xvf - 'C:/Documents and Settings/User/Documents'

This will extract the folder with full path to the current directory. If a folder name is not specified all files will be extracted.
