A bit of a strange problem that likely doesn’t have anything to do with Cubase per se, but I’m hoping you can help.
In my Cubase project folders, along with my main project files with the .cpr extension (call one of them Funk Tune) I have several .bak files called
etc etc. Some projects in this folder have 10 such backup files. The strange thing is - these files all bear the icon of another program I use (Guitar Pro). They are even called ‘Guitar Pro 7 Document’ in the File Type column.
[EDIT: I now see that all .bak files in every Cubase project folder are now showing the Guitar Pro icon]
I tried searching and I know I can set Windows to open a particular file type with a particular program…but clearly both Guitar Pro and Cubase generate .bak files. In the past, my .bak files in my Cubase projects folders all had the familiar Cubase icon.
Should I be concerned? I am assuming that it sort of doesn’t matter, and a .bak file will be opened by the program that created it, regardless of the icon that’s showing?
If not, how do I make it so that Cubase .bak files have a Cubase icon, but Guitar Pro .bak files have a Guitar Pro icon?
