I am trying to recover files from a back-up floppy for the Breez database which ran on a SCO Unix system circa 1995. What file system type would they be written in and how can I make Linux recognize it? Anybody?

To guess, I'd think it was ext2, but I think that's a linux-only file system. It could be HPFS. Linux should read it with the "sysvfs" driver.

The disks contain system back up files of the Breeze business management software produced by Raima Systems of Canada. I think they were ASCII files. Is that possible? In any case they were not the customer data I am seeking. Now I am examining the back up tapes.
