What is a .BKP file?

A .BKP file is a type of file known as a Backup File. Imagine you have an important document, a list of contacts, a project you're working on, or any kind of data you wouldn't want to lose. A .BKP file is like a safety net for this data. It's a copy that you keep just in case something goes wrong with the original—like if it gets lost, deleted, or messed up somehow. Some computer programs are really helpful and make these backup files for you automatically every so often. This way, if you ever have a problem with your main file, you can use the .BKP file to get your data back.

To open a .BKP file, you would typically use the same program that made it. Since .BKP files are made by different programs for different kinds of data, the specific program you need can vary. These backup files are usually kept in the same place as your original data or in a special folder just for backups, often named something like "Backups" or "Backup." For example, if you have a database file named "database.db," and the program you're using creates a backup, the backup file might be named "database.db.bkp" or "database.bkp." This naming helps you know which original file the backup belongs to.

In summary, .BKP files are your plan B for keeping your data safe. They're made by the programs you use, and you'd open them with the same programs if you ever need to restore your data from a backup.
