What is the difference between a Finale Binary File and a file listed with BAK at the end. I tried to transfer some music I wrote from my home computer to my work and the BAK file transferred. But it is a BAK file, whatever that is, and the other music I did at work is a Finale Binary File. Thanks for any help.

BAK files and MUS files are basically the same thing. If you rename the .BAK into a .MUS, you should obtain a valid MUS (Finale Binary) file.

Typically, BAK are backup files containing the next-to-last saved version of your work. In other words, the file you managed to transfer might not be the latest version.

A general piece of advice: avoid spaces in filenames. It often makes it easier to transfer files.

Hope it helps,
