What is a BACKUPINFO file?
A BACKUPINFO file is a text file created by AromaBackup, a Minecraft mod that allows players to back up their Minecraft worlds. It contains metadata describing a backed-up world, including the world's name, the date the world was backed up, and whether the backup is a full or incremental backup. BACKUPINFO files' names correspond to the name of the backup they describe. For example, a world backed up within the file 2019-09-23--07-01.zip would be accompanied by a BACKUPINFO file named 2019-09-23--07-01.backupinfo.
Minecraft is a 3D sandbox construction game that allows players to build nearly anything they can imagine. The original, Java edition of Minecraft allows players to use mods to enhance the game's gameplay and perform additional in-game actions.
AromaBackup is a Minecraft mod that allows players to back up Minecraft worlds. That way, if a world is unintentionally corrupted, modified, or destroyed, the player can use their backup (saved within a .ZIP file) to reload the world and revert it to a previous state.
Whenever AromaBackup creates a backup file, it also creates a BACKUPINFO file. The BACKUPINFO file contains information identifying the world that has been backed up, as well as the date and time at which the backup was created.
How to open a BACKUPINFO file
Because BACKUPINFO files are text files, you can open them using any text editor, such as Microsoft Notepad (Windows), Apple TextEdit (Mac), or Github Atom (cross-platform).
