Open BKF files in Windows 10 without NTBackup with NT5Backup

If you’ve stumbled upon this post, it probably means that you’re struggling against an old .BKF archive/backup file of some sort. As you might already know these are the files generated by NTBackup, a built-in backup application firstly introduced in Windows NT around 1997 and then shipped with all subsequent versions up to and including Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. NTBackup, as most Microsoft-made tools developed in the ’90s, is everything but flexible and user-friendly: it uses a proprietary backup format (BKF) to backup files, which can’t be opened with third-party softwares – except for some commercial, costly alternatives who developed by companies who had to purchase the BKF license, such as BKF-Repair by SysTools and NTBackupExe.

For more informations about NTBackup, we strongly suggest reading the related Wikipedia page.
