Opening BLF files

Did your computer fail to open a BLF file? We explain what BLF files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your BLF files.

What is a BLF file?

Files that contain the .blf file extension are most commonly associated with the Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. BLF files are used to prevent the Windows registry from becoming corrupt.

When a user makes changes to the settings of their operating system, the system's BLF file is modified. This allows the user to perform a system recovery if something goes wrong, restoring the hard drive to its prior state.

The BancTec software also uses the .blf file suffix. These files contain the scanner driver files that are used by the application.

The BIAlite software has also been known to use the .blf file extension. These BLF files are project files that have been created by the BIAlite application.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
