Your .bak file is a backup from an old PAF program such as 4.0 or before. You can convert it by opening it in PAF 4.0 and then it can be backed up and then opened in PAF 5.2. If you don't have 4.0 you can send me a copy of your file and I will convert it for you. I work in the Family History Library in Salt Lake City and have access to the older versions. You can e-mail the backup. Hope this helped.
