Hi,

Maybe you can try a popular BKF file recovery tool called Advanced BKF
Repair to repair your BKF file. It is a powerful tool to repair
corrupt or damaged BKF files.

Detailed information about Advanced BKF Repair can be found at
http://www.datanumen.com/abr/

And you can also download a free demo version at http://www.datanumen.com/abr/abr.exe
Wish you good luck!

It seems like it is whit every file above 4gb that cannot be opent.
Winzip10 supports openingfiles above but also when i try to open a zip above
4gb in virtual pc winzip says that its not a valid winzip file.
When i create an bkf file below 4gb NTbackup can read the file

Also in another virtualpc environment it is the same problem.

I know you said you are using NTFS, but is that the host? Are you sure
you're not using FAT32 in the guests?

Yes i am sure.
I tried opening the zip file on my local pc and it does open.
I tried opening it trough the virtual additions share in virtual pc so the
file is still on my local pc and it gives an error that the zip file is not
valid.
Then i tried to copy the file to my virtual harddisk wich is NTFS and then
tried to open. It still says that the zipp is corrupt.
Also in another virual machine on a other pc it is the same problem.

Hi,
It is probable that your bkf file has corrupted.Here are some BKF file recovery tools you may need to repair your BKF file. Below is a list of them:

Most of them provide a free demo so you can try first.
