I am after some infomation on what a 'platfrombackup.bkf' file is. I have one on a WIN 2000 Server and the size of the file has grown extremely large (35G), and will soon compromise HD space.

I wonder what it is, what its used for, and how i can get its size reduced.

Thanks.

It from running NTBackups. Sounds like there's an auto backup job running.

If you don't use NTbackup and have another tyoe of backup system running, then you can delete it.
