What is bak file?

Backup of another document, often created automatically by the operating system or various programs such as Autodesk AutoCAD; Windows may create BAK files for the System.ini and Win.ini files. NOTE: The file extension should be changed back to the original extension in order for the file to open correctly. This is often done by simply removing the ".bak" part of the filename. For example, "mydocument1.doc.bak" should be renamed to "mydocument1.doc" before being opened.
