What are BUP files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening a BUP file or are you simply curious about its contents? We're here to explain the properties of these files and provide you with software that can open or handle your BUP files.

What is a BUP file?

BUP files are backup files that are created and stored on your PC by a variety of different computer applications. These files are often created from DVD files as image backup files to create a backup image of the contents that are on the DVD onto your computer.

If you play a DVD on your computer and the .IFO file is unreadable due to a surface scratch, the .bup file may be used to retrieve the data. BUP files are also used by programs that archive and store user information. In certain cases, a .bup file will contain backup files that have been created by an application before the application crashes to prevent a loss of data.
