What is a BLEND2 file?

Blend2 file extension has Blender Document Backup 2 file type, developed by Blender, which is associated with the "backup files" category.

Blender – an open source program for modeling in 3D – generates files with this extension automatically. They contain a copy of a .BLEND file that was auto-saved two user saves ago. The .BLEND2 version of a file follows the .BLEND1 backup, which is an immediate copy of the current BLEND document. Blender software allows creating as many backups for a document as the user wants (set in the program preferences). So it is possible that ".blend5," ".blend6," ".blend7," might appear on your PC.
