Compressed and Split BKF Files Recovery
Backup Exec BKF Repair software employs advanced algorithm to recover compressed and split backup files created by Symantec Backup Exec and NT-backup. Generally the other BKF recovery tool is not able to restore data from a split and compressed file, but Sysinfo Backup Exec BKF Repair Software does this in a great way.
Employs Heuristic Scanning
Recovery is done in two different modes: Standard and Advanced. Standard mode is suitable for minor corruption while Advanced Mode can effectively fix severe corruption issues. For much better results, you can select Heuristic Scanning along with Advanced Mode.
The software preview feature works once the selected file is successfully scanned. Then, all the available file items will be displayed in a hierarchical tree structure form. Preview in the preview pane can be checked by clicking on the file item with additional feature to preview of more than 150 file formats.
Partial Scanning Feature
This tool effectively scans a large backup Exec BKF file instantly with the flexible option to select either "Scan complete BKF file" or "Scan partial BKF file" for complete scan or partial scan of corrupted BKF file respectively.
Option to create Log File
The software provides a log button option to generate a log file of entire recovery process which comprise of all the information of recovered BKF file in a text file which can be saved at user defined location.
This software provides the snapshot feature that enables users to save and load snapshots of the recovered file(s) to avoid future re-scanning which saves a lot of scanning time especially in very large files.

Specifications of Backup Exec BKF Repair Software
A BKF, or backup, is a computer file that contains all the backup copies of our data which we have backed up by using any backup program, such as: Symantec (VERITAS) or Nt-Backup Exec. It helps us in our crucial time by restoring our data from it when a situation like data loss or data corruption takes place. The difference between Symantec Backup Exec and Nt-Backup Exec are:
- Symantec Backup Exec: Symantec Backup Exec (formerly known as VERITAS) is a backup software application developed by Symantec and is used to create system backup, Microsoft Exchange Server backup as well as SQL server backup. By using Symantec backup users can compress as well as encrypt their backup files. The Symantec Backup Exec is highly supportable with Windows 7, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server.
- NT-Backup: NT-Backup is a built-in backup utility program of Microsoft Windows, often known as Windows backup. Nt-Backup is available in Windows NT, 2000, XP and Server 2003. In Windows Vista, NT-Backup was replaced by Windows Backup and Restore. To create backup in Windows 7 by using Nt-Backup, we first need to download it from the internet. Then, we can backup our data in Windows 7.
A BKF file can be split in these situations:
- If you are using Nt-Backup to create a backup file and the data which you are going to backup is up to 20GB or more than it, you will need to allocate a location on your system to save the BKF file, for example D: drive which has a FAT file system. In such situations, your BKF file of 20GB will be split into five parts, i.e. four GB each, since FAT doesn't save a file more than 4GB of size. The Nt-Backup splits the BKF file itself into multiple parts if you are going to save it in a drive having FAT file system.
- And if you are using Symantec Backup Exec to backup your data, it will split your BKF file if the file size is more than 4GB. It doesn't matter either you are saving it on any drive having FAT file system or NTFS just for compatibility reasons. You change this split size setting from Backup Exec settings panel.
The file compression on a BKF file is only possible by using Symantec Backup Exec. It is the only backup program that supports backup compression. As we know a backup file takes a lot of space, especially when you are backing up Windows Exchange Server or an SQL Server. You can avoid such situation by reducing the file size of BKF files. The backup files can be easily compressed if you are using Symantec Backup Exec. However sometimes it becomes very difficult to restore data from a compressed BKF file if it gets corrupted, since most BKF recovery software do not support recovery of compressed BKF file. In such situation you can use Backup Exec BKF Repair software of SysInfoTools to recover your data from corrupt BKF file which is compressed.
To create a backup file by using Symantec Backup Exec, you need to follow these simple steps:For backup:
- Open Symantec Backup Exec on your system.
- On Backup and Restore tab > select Backup > Backup to Disk.
- Please wait until the running process is completed
- A window Backup Properties will be appearing, click on Edit.
- On the left pane click, select the drive and the data you want to backup.
- Now on the right pane, click on Edit.
- A new window Backup Options will be appearing.
- Select all the desired options from Backup Options.
- Now click on OK.
- On Storage tab > select Configure Storage
- Please wait while the default information is loading
- Now select the type of storage you want to configure: Disk Based Storage, Network Storage, Tape Storage and Storage Tools
- For example: select Disk Based Storage and click on Next
- Click on Disk Storage and then Next.
- Now on the right pane, click on Edit.
- Type any name of Disk Storage and click on Next.
- Now select the location where you want to create the Disk Storage Device, click on Next.
- Click on Finish.
Here is list of some common error messages or indications which take place at the time of BKF file corruption:
- "Backup Exec 11d e000fe36- Corrupt data encountered".
- Corrupt, bad, unknown scratch media in deduplication folder/OST Appliance causing jobs to queue for a long time.
- "CRC error" takes place while opening or extracting a BKF file.
- Backup Exec fails performing a backup operation and encounters corrupt files.
What is BKF compression and how can I be sure that BKF Recovery software recovers data in uncompressed format?
BKF compression is a run-length compression scheme used by Symantec Backup Exec software to compress backup data in small BKF size. In most of the cases, compression ratio of up to 50% is achieved by this and sometimes even higher which results in smaller BKF size. This process is boon for backup task but in case of recovery this impose a serious challenge as compression algorithm is not open and will result in file have perfect name and date timestamp but recovered files are not usable. Our engineers decipher this problem and generate algorithms which de-compress such data so that you will get recovered file with original data, not compressed one. A way to identify compress data is to open recovered file into hex viewer and very first two characters of file data will be 'FH'. This indicates that data is still in compressed format and file will not be usable. There is a caveat in this as Backup Exec software imposes a threshold file size to perform compression; if file size is lesser than 2 MB then compression will not be applied where files larger than 2 MB will be compressed while saving in BKF file. Make sure you use BKF Recovery Software which has decompression capabilities so that you will get all files with the correct size - not just images and a few smaller documents.
Considering that technology grows as data grows too, our BKF Recovery software is programmed to handle several terabytes of files. Theoretically, it can also handle several petabytes of BKF files but this would be far cry as even today scenario such gigantic files are very few. So, you can assure that there is not any file size limitation for the software.
After scanning I can see all my data in a tree structure, but after saving those long root names appear in folder structure. How can I change them before starting the saving process?
BKF Recovery software provides a renaming feature by which you can rename longer entries into shorter ones from tree structure, which will result in a shorter path length and which will further assure that all recovered data will appear in a proper hierarchical manner. Windows OS version before Win 7 imposed a file path limitation of 256 characters and any path larger that this will be truncated and result in storing files saving on root destination folder. Making root entries shorter and keeping target path shorter will result in hassle free saving of recovered file from corrupt BKF files.
Though the scanning speed of software is quite impressive, but I want to speed it up as I have a very big file. How can I do that?
Scanning speed depends upon a lot of factors, such as current OS version, hardware configuration, its performance, etc. The Server operating systems are usually not recommended due to their priority to background tasks. Although we can change this setting to programs from background services, but overall Servers are more conservative in allocation resources to programs which demand performance. A nice trick to speed up the process is to minimize the application during processing; this will speed up scanning process up to 5 times. This is due to progress update overhead which imposed on application when it's on focus. With this trick, you can increase the scanning speed for sure.
I am using demo version of software and I can see all my recoverable files inside the BKF, BKF file was quite large and it took some considerable amount of time to re-scan again. How can I save my time when I purchase the full version?
You can utilize the snapshot feature of the software to save the scanning process of a file which can be loaded in full version right away and you need not re-scan BKF file again once you purchase the full version. Make sure you do not move original BKF file path as original path stored in snapshot file and even slight change in file path make this snapshot feature useless.
