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.
