.mbf File Extension

Developer: Microsoft
File type: Microsoft Money Backup File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .mbf. Files with the file extension .mbf can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .mbf files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .mbf file?

The backup files that are created using the Microsoft Money program are known as MBF files. The files are developed by Microsoft wherein these files contain a .MNY file backup whether they are compressed or uncompressed. MNY files are used to compress and backup large MNY files and save them into a single archive. MNY backups play a big part in keeping MNY files safe in case the computer is corrupted as well as in case users need to transfer MNY files to another computer wherein users may need to transfer them to a disc first. The Microsoft Money software can convert MNY files to .qif files. Microsoft Money is also used to open MNY files. This is an application useful for the management of personal finances and for helping users improve financial pictures with lesser effort. However, this software is already a discontinued product wherein its sales and support are no longer available at present.

how to open a .mbf file?

Launch a .mbf file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .mbf file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .mbf files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .mbf file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .mbf file will open the correct application.

Microsoft Money

Microsoft Money is the personal finance management software from Microsoft Corporation that preceded Microsoft Money Plus Sunset, which opens and edits files created by Money, but doesn't offer online support or web app services. Microsoft Money 2006, which was the final version before it was replaced, allowed its users to access their savings accounts through Internet banking. MS Money users created personal budgets, tracked their expenses, and balanced financial statements. It certainly needed Windows OS to function, but its 2000 to 2006 releases also worked compatibly with select Windows Mobile versions. Since Money Plus Sunset and its two editions are meant to replace Money Essentials and its related versions, they would have the same functions as their predecessors, except for the facility to import data files from non-US Money editions, to pay bills online, and to automatically download bank statements.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .mbf files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .mbf. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
