Need DOS version of Colorado Backup Software

Need DOS version of Colorado Backup Software


We have an old computer (~1989) that is used to control an automatic test station.  The hard drive crashed and we are trying to restore everything from a backup on magnetic tapes.  The tapes are approximately 3 1/4" x 2 3/8" in size.  The tape backup drive in the computer is labeled 250MB but it doesn't have a manufacturer's name on it.  We have a manual that came with the drive that is labeled Colorado Tape Backup software.  Is this the same software being discussed on this forum?  Can anyone tell me where I can get the software for our tape drive?  We have a backup of the hard drive but not a back up of the tape drive software.  A lot of good that does!  I believe that Hewlett Packard (now Agilent) purchased Colorado Backup, but they don't support the product any more. We are using DOS 6.0.

Thanks very much.
