    ya. that's what comes out if i search the net for the program that created it. Is there a program that can just extract to text file? Thanks.

    Seems these files are made by winbackup so why not use that to retrieve?

    I tried Access but can't recognize the file *.mbk. What other winbackup software can I use? Thanks.
