What is BKF Files?

See BKF file is basically the backup file extensions created by NTBackup Utility  Tool, it is a built-in backup application from Microsoft. Whose main function is to create automatic backups of the database files of its users. This utility tool saves these backup files in .bkf format. And that is BKF files for you in layman’s terms.

But there is an issue with this file format and that is, it is not immune from viruses and mail wares. Hence, this file is prone to corruption. Which ultimately leads to inaccessible files.

The major concern that we all face is in the recovery process. Recovering corrupt BKF files is not that easy and there are great chances of losing your data. Plus the best part is that there are no manual procedures or techniques to recover these corrupt BKF files.
