What is a BKUP file?

A BKUP file is a generic backup file used by various programs and scripts for creating backups. It may be used for a variety of purposes, such as a backup of critical data files, word processing documents, or logs. BKUP files are used for restoring the original files in case an unexpected event occurs.

More Information

If you discover a BKUP file on your computer, it most likely was created by a program that is, or was, installed on your computer. BKUP files are typically created in a folder located in the installation directory of the program that created it.

NOTE: One example use of BKUP files is with cPanel and WHM, a web server management software, which uses BKUP files for Awstats server traffic logging.
