|Backup Of DVD Info Format||N/A||Backup Files|
The .BUP file extension is a specific type of backup DVD file. It stands for a DVD Information File (IFO) Backup File and files with this extension are created by the Interactive Media Technologies solely for the use of DVD movie disk files. The .BUP files are placed in the same folder as their counterpart .IFO and .VOB files, and have the same name. It is related to other video file formats such as .VOB,.IFO,.MPEG,.MPG and others.
Specific Features of BUP File Extensions
A.BUP file is an identical copy of an IFO file that is used as an alternate in case the IFO file gets corrupted. Its main purpose is to help DVDs play correctly without any difficulty, preserving its playback options data. The IFO holds the information about its content, media stream sizes and menus, while VOBs contain the video, audio, subtitles, and extra features were applicable. When you install a DVD onto your computer it should automatically create both IFO and BUP files.
Similar File Extensions
Some of the similar file extensions commonly associated with the .BUP format include IFO,.VOB,.MPEG,.MPG, among many other video types. Most basic media players will be able to recognize and open these files. More specialized programs such as those developed by Interactive Media Technologies, may offer additional functions when playing them from a DVD.
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .BUP) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .BUP extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .BUP file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .BUP extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .BUP extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .BUP file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .BUP file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .BUP file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .BUP file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .BUP file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
