What is a GBP file?

Archive index file created by Genie Timeline, a backup and recovery program for desktop computer and mobile device files; contains the index of a collection of files that the user has chosen to backup; may reference a single archive or a multi-volume spanned archive; used for restoring the backed up files.

More Information

Genie Timeline creates the GBP index file at the end of a backup session. Without this file, the backup cannot be restored. GBP files are created with the naming conventions backup.gbp, backup.X.gbp, and backup(X).X.gbp, where "X" is a digit.

Genie Timeline can be used for incremental or full backups and can incorporate optional compression.

NOTE: Genie Timeline Backup uses .ZIP compression for backups, so you can use any Zip decompression utility to manually examine the contents of backup files.

.GBP File Association 2

Data output file created by CAD Printed Circuit Board (PCB) tools such as Autodesk EAGLE; contains layout data for the bottom paste layer of the PCB for creating stencils to apply paste to the board.

More Information

The GBP file functions similar to a .PDF file. It is an exported version of the PCB layout and used to create stencils. The stencils are then used to apply paste to boards for adding surface-mount devices (SMD), like pads. It is meant to be viewed and referenced but not edited.

NOTE: The Gerber format was originally developed by Gerber Systems but is now maintained by Ucamco.
