bkfjtools hack and slash for english

I needed a quick way to extract some files out of an NTbackup “BKF” file and didn’t have time to go buy a tool.  A couple seconds of googling revealed the bkfjtools program.  Unfortunately, I don’t read Japanese that well.  So I did a quick hack and slash conversion to English using google translate on the strings for the bkfexp tool.  Source is here.  Probably should clean it up for real language support and commit back.  Probably won’t happen due to time constraints.

Should have googled more than two seconds….Another technique to use NTBackup on Win Vista/7 is described here.  But what’s the fun in that?
