Backups Broken?

  • Is there a known issue with KPA Backups, currently? I updated my KPA to 7.08 today via Rig Manager. As my normal routine, I created a backup of the KPA to USB Stick. I noticed after the backup, that the file had a different extension than the older backups on the stick. Normally, I get .kpabackup. Todays backups had .kpbackup. I then installed 7.08, and afterward, I created another backup, which also has the .kpbackup extension. When I try to unzip with 7Zip, I'm getting a corrupted zip file error message. Btw, the older backups on the stick, with the .kpabackup extension, open correctly.

    There’s a new data structure with FW 7.0.

    I also believe you can’t open a backup with a unzipping app anymore.
