Like windows NT? Or the file extension .nt? For windows nt....
Windows NT (Windows New Technology) A 32-bit operating system from Microsoft for Intel x86 CPUs. NT is the core technology in Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Available in separate client and server versions, it includes built-in networking and preemptive multitasking. Windows NT was introduced in 1993 as Version 3.1 with the same user interface as Windows 3.1. In 1996, Version 4.0 switched to the Windows 95 desktop and changed some of the dialogs (see table below).

A New Lineage

Unlike Windows 95/98, NT supports multiprocessing systems, adds extensive security and administrative features and offers a dual boot capability. Designed for enterprise use, each application can access 2GB of virtual memory. NT does not support Plug and Play, which was later added in Windows 2000 and XP. NT 4 Server, Enterprise Edition supports clustering and failover in the event of system failure.

For x86 Machines Only

NT runs 16-bit DOS and Windows applications in its own emulation mode and also provides a command processor that executes DOS commands. Support for the PowerPC and MIPS platforms was initially planned, but later dropped. Support for Alpha servers reached beta testing stages, but was also dropped.

Following are the various versions of NT as well as Windows 2000, which followed.

Then, for the file extension:
.nt File type:
Startup files

Or.... is it the cassette? Like this:
NT (cassette)
NT was a digital memo recording system introduced by Sony in 1992, sometimes marketed under the name Scoopman. The system stored memos using helical scanning on specia microcassettes , which were 30 21.5 5 mm with a tape width of 2.5 mm, with a recording capacity of up to 120 minutes.

NT stands for Non-Tracking, meaning the head moves at a shallower slope to that of the tracks on the tape, crossing several during each pass, albeit only reading partial data from each one. By making several different passes it is possible to reassemble the complete data for each track, in memory. This considerably reduced the complexity and size of the head, and therefore the recorder.

Another feature was Non-Loading, which meant instead of having a mechanism to pull the tape out of the cassette and wrap it around the drum, the drum was pushed inside the cassette to achieve the same effect.

Audio sampling was in stereo at 32 KHz/12 bit and encoded using a form of lineardelta modulation called LDM-2.

I hope this helps...
