.RBF File

File extension: RBF
File type: File


Notes about the RBF file extension:



To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The RBF file type is primarily associated with 'Rollback' by Microsoft Corporation. The .RBF files and the config.msi folder are used by the Windows Installer rollback process. The rollback script (.RBS) file is always stored in the Config.Msi folder on the drive where the operating system is installed. The .RBF files are stored in the Config.Msi folder located on the drive where the application that is being backed up currently resides. This is done so that there is no crossing of drives when backing up the application files. Files with a RBS file extension are rollback script files and files with a RBF file extension are backups of existing files. All rollback files and the Config.Msi folder are deleted when the installation completes successfully.
