Import Teradata Backup in to SQL Server

Does anyone know of a method or an available tool to import a Teradata database backup file in to SQL Server.

I am assuming the Teradata backup file is a compressed file - not a text file of any kind (txt, csv, xml).

Thanks

AFAIK datablocks are directly copied as is in a Teradata backup.
So there no way to read that (and no third party tools as for SQL Server).

I would have to agree with Dieter on this one.

There is a SQL Sever connector from a third party available to facilitate data migrations between the two environments or you could export the data to a flat file and load it into SQL Server.

Hope this helps.
