Backup file created by Veeam virtual machine (VM) backup and recovery software; contains a full recovery backup of the VM and is the largest of the files created for any backup; allows a full restore of the state of the machine when it was last backed up.

More Information

VBK files differ from .VRB files, which contain incremental backup changes since the time of the full backup.

NOTE: VBK files can be very large (many gigabytes in size). For this reason, they are often backed up to low-cost storage devices such as tape backups.
