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.

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

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 :)
