Re: what program open the.dat files from a BBB file

Hi, you can open the .bbb file with the BlackBerry backup Extractor (3), you don't need to convert it into a .zip. The tool was built to open only .ipd and .bbb files

 

Please try again the free version of the software on the .bbb file (no zipping please). It should extract the first records of each category (including emails, which are saved as .eml files) and let you test if it is possible to get the emails. To extract all the files, you will need to register. The data is automatically saved to your computer, so check your desktop after you extract. Hope this helps!
