Opening FBK files

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

What is a FBK file?

Files that contain the .fbk file extension are most commonly associated with the Microsoft Dynamics NAV software application, previously known as Microsoft Navision.

The FBK files that are used by this software contain a backup of a database that has been created with the program. These files often contain financial data that is used in the analysis and management of business information and are a backup copy of the applicant's FDB files.

The FBK files that are stored on a user's system can be used to restore the original FDB file if the FDB file becomes lost or corrupted.

The .fbk file suffix is also used for backup files for the FlashFXP and the Family Tree software applications.

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.
