Opening BUP files
Did your computer fail to open a BUP file? We explain what BUP files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert 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.
Software that will open, convert or fix BUP files
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.
