NBF appears to be the file archive format of "Backup NOW". It must of compressed the backup file in its native format. Does the manual suggest you can use the utility to view the archived files? Were you wanting to extract an individual file from the backup?

Yes, i want to view the individual files.
I burnt the files directly onto the DVD by using the burner software, which is originally installed on my computer.

Does the manual of that program suggest that you can view that archive using its native file viewer? Otherwise I guess you cannot because of the propriety file format it uses.

Have a look at


Click "See other NTI Products" Bottom right.
Click Tab "Backup Solutions", as suggested by Jen does this list the programme you have installed?
If you have no manual look at first page top right . See there also for other info.

I've downloaded the manual for the product NTI Backup NOW! 4.0 which I am presuming is the product you have? It tells you how to restore a single file from a saved archive.

You can find the manual here (http://www.ntius.com/default.asp?p=download/download_prod&prod=bun4&ver=update#manual). On page 18 you will see a section on "Restoring files using find files".
