Opening ABK files

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

What is an ABK file?

Files that contain the .abk file extension usually contain backup files that may be associated with a variety of different software applications. These files contain a backup copy of a file that is currently in use by another software application.

The ABK file format is also used to recover files that have been lost due to computer crashes or corruption of a computer file due to virus attacks or hardware malfunctions. Popular applications that use the ABK file format for backup file purposes include the CorelDRAW and Avigo software programs.

The Need for Speed gaming software also uses the .abk file suffix. These ABK files contain audio files that are used by the application during a user's gameplay.

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.
