What is an NWBAK file?

Backup file created by NeatWorks, which is an older version of the digital filing system software, Neat 5; similar to the .NBAK and .NRBAK files; contains a backup of your scanned documents, including contacts and receipts.

More Information

To create a NWBAK file, select Tools → Database → Backup, use the default save name, click "Browse," choose a save location, and click Backup.

To restore a database in versions before Neat 5 using the NWBAK file, select Tools → Database → Restore, select "Browse," navigate to your file, select "Open," and then click Restore.

In order to restore an old database such as the NWBAK file, you will need to run the "Neat Data Migration Utility," select "Browse," choose your backup file, provide a cabinet and database location, and click Migrate.

NOTE: The NWBAK file extension replaced the NRBAK extension with the release of version 4.6 of NeatWorks. It was then used up until version 4.9 and was replaced by the NBAK extension with the release of Neat 5.
