okay, I am taking a case from a coworker. he, for some reason instead of giving my the encase files, gave me a dvd with a bkf extention. Is encase able to take back up files and give them a look through? or do I need to do other things to make this file readable... sorry I know its a dumb question but thanks for the help.

when i put it in Encase it opens as a single file. Is there a way that i can open it and browse it? I would like to explore it. to do that do I need to change its file type? Okay thank you.

I know you can "promote" (v.5) a .cbak file to the case file, but I still think you need the original case file. So, see if he can DVD the original case file to you.

Of course, I would also hash the two .case files to make sure they match, blah, blah, blah...

Apologies for replying to such an old thread, but couldn't control myself as I too was in the same dilemma.

Being a Forensicator, I often come across such scenarios.

I too am looking for a solution that can prove to be a quick forensic equipment to read the bkf file format. In fact, I am working on certain cases related to this too.

Please share if anyone finds a suitable solution. I am looking for the same and will try my best to be back with one.
Very Happy

Regards

I still come across bkf files occasionally but they are a pain to open now, as Windows got rid of the bkf option after XP. I would suggest making a copy in Encase to preserve your original, then take the copy and decompress it using this - "https : // www .microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx? id=4220&tduid= %28a4ba0d7647396cb597564fa0787e273f%29%28266696%29%281503186%29% 28skim1402X558040Xea0ce03efd79e839a882e7af955e8dd7%29%28%29"
and you should then be able to see the individual files. Hopefully this might help but I have never tried it myself so there are no guarantees.
