MTF (Microsoft Tape Format)

In 1996, Conner merged with Arcada (a subsidiary of Conner) to form Seagate Software upon their acquisition by Seagate Technology. A new specification of the tape backup format has been developed: the Microsoft Tape format (MTF).

MTF is used in all versions of Backup Exec after 1998. Microsoft also used MTF in Windows NT for NTBackup and later versions of Windows backup software.

The Microsoft tape format is also used in Windows BKF files and in the BackupAssist utility.
