What is a BKP file?

A BKP file is a data file created by Backup Your Mobile, a backup app for Android devices. It contains a portion of a user's backup data. Backup Your Mobile uses BKP files when restoring users' backups, which do not themselves have a file extension.

More Information

For example, if a Backup Your Mobile user creates a backup that backs up the apps on their device, Backup Your Mobile will also create a BKP file that contains a list of those applications. Backup Your Mobile uses this list to restore the user's applications, as it restores the associated backup.

NOTE: Artur Jaszcyzk discontinued the Backup Your Mobile app.

How to open a BKP file

BKP files are not meant to be opened. However, because BKP files are plain text files, you can open and view them with any text editor. Keep in mind that editing a BKP file may prevent you from being able to restore Backup Your Mobile backups.
