SysTools BKF Recovery, know until recently as SysTools BKF Repair, is a software tool that aids people in repairing a corrupt BKF file, preview its contents and save them to the PC.
Clean interface and extensive documentation
You come face to face with a pretty minimal and clear-cut layout, which consists of a menu bar, a few buttons and two panes in which to display a folder structure and items as a list. Comprehensive and well-drawn Help contents are provided by the developers, and thus make sure that both power and novice users can easily find their way around this utility.
Types of scans available
It is possible to open BKF backups with the help of a file browser, after which you are required to choose one of the available scans in order to recover data from the selected item.
To be more precise, you can take advantage of a quick scan (suitable for files with minimum corruption), a deep one (for highly corrupted items) and range based one, which lets you extract a specified portion of the given backup file.
Preview items and save them to the PC
If this process is successful, the contents of the backup file are going to be displayed, along with information such as name, size and modified date.
By simply selecting an item, it is possible to preview its contents in the main window, while a single click of the button is going to save the specified retrieved information to the hard drive.
In conclusion, SysTools BKF Recovery is a pretty reliable and useful piece of software when it comes to retrieving data from Windows backup files. The interface is dedicated to all user categories, jobs are going to be completed in a fair amount of time and we did not come across any hangs or freezes in our tests.
