What is a NBF file?

A .NBF file is a NTI Backup Now Archive file. Files that contain the .nbf file extension are most commonly associated with the NTI Backup Now backup software program. When the NTI Backup Now application is used to create backups of files and folders on a user's system, the resulting file archive is saved with the .nbf file extension.

In most cases, a user will save more than one backup using the NTI Backup Now software. The multiple files are then named in sequence, with each file containing the .nbf file suffix, such as backup_001.nbf, backup_002.nbf, and backup_003.nbf.
