About the BKF file type:

Invalid file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your Windows PC. It is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other slowdown issues.

The BKF file extension is employed in identifying a catalog of files backed up by means of the Windows Backup Utility which is included with the Windows XP Pro and NT. The said utility has to be installed using the installation disc of XP Home so that it may be used with the Home Edition of Windows XP. The Windows Backup Utility aids and supports the creation of a duplicate of the information found on the hard disk. When the original data on the hard disk is erased accidentally, is overwritten, or when the user could not access it because of a malfunction in the hard disk, the user would be able to utilize the copy in order to restore the lost or damaged data. The Windows Backup Utility functions to help users protect their data from accidental losses. For instance, users could use the Windows Backup in creating a duplicate copy of data on the hard disk. The duplicate copy is then archived in a different storage device. The storage medium for the backup may be a logical drive such as the user's hard drive or an external storage device like a removable disk, a whole library of tapes or disks organized in a media pool.
