How to open file with DBK extension?

DBK file description

If you are into designing work, then you must have come across the OrCAD software developed by Cadence Design. Well, .dbk is the file generated by the OrCAD while you use the application. It is the backup file to store the schematics of a program that you write on the software. You cannot read or edit the backup files using any editor. These files can only be opened using OrCAD only and only then can you edit and use them as needed. You cannot convert these files to any other file format as these are only backup files. But what you can do is restore the data for sure and then you can edit them or convert them to other extensions.
