I realized today that I accidentally deleted 5 entries from my logbook. How do I view an old BAK file so I can re-enter the accidentally deleted entries in my current logbook.

Best,

There isn't really a way to view what's in a BAK file without actually restoring it to your logbook.

If you want to do that, here's the process I would recommend.

1. Create a backup of your current, most up to date logbook (the one missing 5 entries).
2. Find the previous BAK you want to reference and restore your logbook to that backup.
3. Find the missing entries and write them down somewhere.
4. Restore the most current BAK (with 5 missing entries) and add those missing entries manually.
