Opening HBK files

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

What is a HBK file?

The .hbk file extension is used for a proprietary backup archive format that was developed by Han-soft. These HBK files contain copies of files that have been backed up using the Auto Backup software. This is a Windows program that was also created by Han-Soft.

The Auto Backup software can allow users to manually create backup copies of the files in their Windows computers. There are also scheduling features that are available in this program, which can enable users to automatically create backup copies of their files. All backup copies of these files are made available for the user to manipulate, and these HBK files are created by the Auto Backup software so as to archive all files that have been backed up.

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.
