Alternate App to Restore a Backup Set Created from Backup Exec 2010

Alternate App to Restore a Backup Set Created from Backup Exec 2010

(OP)
We want to just restore data from a backup set created by Symantec Backup Exec 2010 on a computer that does not have this software. Short of purchasing Backup Exec, is there an alternative application (open-source or lower-cost) that recognizea this file format? We just to restore and do not need to perform backups on this computer.

It was mentioned in an older post ('03/'04) that NTBackup might be an alternative. Are there newer solutions out there that can help us accomplish this?

Thanks in advance.

Found an answer to my own question. Got a response in Spiceworks to download and install a trial edition of Symantec Backup Exec. This will work since we just need to restore data.
