What Clients Say

I was having trouble opening backup files on the newer OS versions that the organization had kept in archives. Thankfully BKF Viewer is a standalone application and didn't demand for an Win XP environment for processing the backup file for opening and viewing purpose.

Harry Charles, Poland

Quite impressed with the both the scanning modes of this BKF file Viewer software. Judging by the name, it seemed that the Windows Backup Viewer software was only capable of opening backup files. It was after reading in detail about the tool did I find out that it is also capable of opening corrupt backups!
