What is .BK1 file?
Backup file created by Autodesk products, including AutoCAD Mechanical, Mechanical Desktop, and AutoCAD Map; stores a .BAK file that has been renamed with the ".bk1" extension; renamed when the Autodesk program terminates unexpectedly.
BAK files are automatically created when users save drawing files. Therefore, when a program crashes, Autodesk applications try to rename the BAK file to BK1 to prevent a corrupted drawing file from replacing the original backup.
NOTE: If the BK1 extension is already in use, Autodesk programs use ".bk2" through ".bk9," as well as ".bka" through ".bkz" and ".baa" through ".bzz" until a unique extension is found.
