SQL BAK Reader Specifications
Display the information of a SQL Server backup file.
SQL BAK Reader is a Windows application that can display the details of a SQL Server backup file, without requiring an instance of SQL Server to be available. It obtains the backup information directly from the header of each backup set that is stored in the backup file. Useful when you do not have access to a SQL Server instance and need to know what's contained in a backup file, or when you cannot restore a backup file and want to know which version of SQL Server the backup set was created from.
