BFF files can be created by the AIX "backup" command, and read by the corresponding "restore" command. There is no standard file suffix, although some files use
.bff. However, files can be identified programmatically by their "magic number" in the first 4 bytes. This can be either
0x09006fea, in big-endian byte order.
The Backup-File Format is also used for AIX software packages.
