Sims2 Help Please

Archived from groups: alt.games.the-sims (More info?)

I was wondering about these bak files. I notice they show up after
making some objects (recolors)
EP ready with SimPE. The only thing is that they are duplicates of the
original file & I'm wondering
if I can delete them or is it necessary to keep them in order for the
original object recolor to show up
in University. Oh I hope I'm making sense describing this. LOL

Any help at all would be very much appreciated. I'm going nuts with
these odd files that are
taking up space in my downloads folder.

    bak is standard shorhand for backup. SimPe makes a backup of a file
    before it changes it. This is what these files are. If you are sure
    what you done is ok then you can simply delete them, or ignore them
    like I do.

    You can even set up SimPe not to make backups period.
