It is possible - redirect and change path (from /tmp to c:\temp etc.)

It is however unsupported and there is no guarantee that the restored data will be of any use to you.

The other issue is that Windows does not take note of case so ABC.txt will be the same as abc.txt as far as Windows is concerned so may over write files as it goes along

Hope this helps

Or restore files to a UNIX box and use Filezilla to copy files to a Windos box.

Assumption is the mother of all mess ups.

This has been discussed several times in old threads.. not exactly same OS but similar:

Just bear in mind don't call up support if your restore does not work - because it is NOT supported :)
