How do I open a .bak file??

Post by JLiRD808 » Sun May 27, 2012 11:23 pm

Ok so I found the auto-save .bak file that I'd like to try out but I can't open it? Windows doesn't recognize the file type.

Normally I know how to deal with/control auto-save very well. I've never tried to open any other auto-save point besides the most recent though, not an auto-save point from between two saved versions from the night before.

Any help?

THANKS!! :D

Yeah I edited my first post I dont know where the edit went though.

Yes just go into Cubase and select "Open..." and go to your project folder where u're .cprs are saved. By default, its only looking at and seeing ".cpr" files but if you select "Open a different file type" at the bottom you will see the .bak option. Select that, and then u will see all of your .baks in your project folder.

Super easy! :D
