BKP is short form of Backup. This file format is used by a number of software applications to create backup. The backup can be of any data.
Generally such file is created for restoring previous configuration if the data undergoes any change. Such file is also created by the application to recover the data in case it becomes corrupted. In some cases BKP extension is added at the end of the file which is to be saved. In order to use it the BKP file extension is required to be removed. Both operations are done by the recovery software application.
In addition to the problem described above, i.e. the lack of the appropriate application to support the .BKP file, there may be several reasons that cause problems with opening and operation of the data format:
A quite common problem is the lack of application in the appropriate version. Even if you have an application, with the help of which you should open the .BKP file, you may have a problem with it because of its version. Perhaps in previous versions the application has not yet supported the .BKP file, so download the update and check again.
If you have already installed the appropriate application, and it is the correct version, the file may not open correctly, because the operating system does not have information that this program supports the file. So you need to "show" which program the computer should use. To do this:
It also happens that the file you want to open is corrupt and therefore there is no such possibility. In this situation, you should find its different version, or ask a person from whom you got, to send it again.
