Hi everyone,

My company is currently running SBS 2003 and while browsing around the server, I found about 40 .BKF files that were taking up about 1GB a piece.  All of them were created on the same date.  I know that BKF stands for Windows backup files, but why so many and on the same date?  I'm just curious, because they are taking up a good bit of space.

Thanks

Well, this answer can be given by the person who took the backup.

My answer to your question would be - take another good backup of your information store (for Exchange) + system state (for AD) + file-level backup.

For those remaining place them on any network drive. For the recent one - preserve it safely.

That's part of the problem, that person is no longer here.

Well, then thats why i asked you to take those three backups and move these backup files some place else.

Or if you want to take the pain - load each file turn by turn into NTBackUp and check whats in it. This sounds boring - i had to do this for one of our clients - to give them a list of 10 files :)
