Many thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It look like this may be a file from BackupEarth.com , BKE apparently is a data compression file.  I have not found an app listed anywhere that can open this. It may be proprietary to their site, encrypted or something else.

    BKE stands for BackupEarth.com data compression file. The file contains backup data, and you would have to use restore utility that would recognize that file type. I am not sure whether any of restore utilities that Microsoft or Western Digital will recognize it.

    The bke file extension is associated with the BackupEarth.com compression software. The .bke file stores compressed data.

    Bke compression file format as well as BackupEarth.com compression software is obsolete products.

    Many thanks. The file is a backup file of data for the now obsolete Sharp Organiser ZQ190.

    Yes, it is BackupEarth.com data compression file. .bke is the compressed files that contain many separate files in one large archive. This file type is common type as: .rar, .7z, .zip, .dd etc.

    You are going to have to get a legacy system possibly as far back as XP maybe further, and install the Sharp Software to it. You then can restore the backup (BKE) file to it. None of the documentation that I was able to find mentions running it on newer than XP.

    Depending on how critical these files are you might find a copy of XP for sale on line or a used system with XP running on it for sale fairly cheap. I still have a few old desktops at home with XP and 98. They have not even been powered on in about 4 years but have for emergencies.

    I also have a number of legacy machines going back to Win 95. I am supporting people that have to machines that are running software that the people need and no one has come up with anything better to replace the software package. XP is still out and available.
