If you have a good backup of the files this should work for you.

*.BAK files are normally the actual original file with a .BAK at the end (instead of .CNS, .DEF, .CMD, .SFF etc)
Windows does this to create a copy of the file (instead of overwriting the file).

You should be able to simply change the file extension and the file should work (alternately the files other than the SFF should open with notepad).

Here is a walkthrough how to change the file extension:

Hope this helps.
