A backup initiated from the Unix Client will only backup the Unix file structure
to tape as it does not recognize the Windows file structure.

systems will no longer have access to their file systems following a restore as
Unix files will not have been copied during the backup.
The two primary elements that are missing are the NFS Metadata and the
Access Control Lists.
