What are BKF files and how to open them

What is a BKF file?
A .BKF file is a Windows NT Backup Archive file.
These files are created by the Windows Backup Utility tool. This tool was included with the Windows NT and Windows XP Pro operating systems. The BKF files that are used by these operating systems contain a catalog of files that have been backed up with the utility. If the data on a user's computer becomes corrupt, overwritten, or erased, the BKF file can then be used to restore the information on the user's system.
