Questions and answers

  • What is the purpose of the ".AIP Recovery" file extension?

    The ".AIP Recovery" file extension is associated with Adobe Illustrator, a popular vector graphics editor. This file extension is used for backup and recovery purposes. When working on an Illustrator project, the software automatically creates temporary backup files with the ".AIP Recovery" extension. These files serve as a safety net in case of unexpected crashes, power outages, or other incidents that may cause data loss.

Once the original file is reopened, Illustrator prompts the user to recover the data from the backup file, helping to prevent loss of work.
