    File format of Backup file in Windows 8


    I tried searching it on Google but didn't find anything, the backup file created in XP and Win7 is saved with .bkf file extension,

    I want to know the same for the file history in Windows 8, what's the extension or the files are simply saved in the same directory structure with same file extensions as originals,


    Thanks

    File backups are Zip files, so .zip
    System image backups are .VHD
