how to view backup data on PC

 I have been backing up address book from my BB  via desktop manager to a file on my PC,  How can I view the files (old address book)on my PC, is it possible? It seems as if i would have to transfer it back to the BB, which would delete the current one. There are old phone numbers that I saved that I need to access. All I get on outlook express is the current list.

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: how to view backup data on PC

Hi and welcome to the forums! :smileyhappy:

A couple of places for you to visit: Blackberry 101    Tips & Tricks

 

Make a backup of your current device databases and save to your pc.  This way you will have your current address book backed up for later restore.  You can then restore  your old address book using the following procedure:

 

Selective restore of data

 

Let us know how it goes.  Post back if you have any questions before proceeding.

 

Happy to have you here! :smileyvery-happy:

Re: how to view backup data on PC

The ABC Blackberry Amber converter found at http://www.processtext.com/abcblackberry.html absolutely works.  It allows you to view any of your blackberry backups on your PC.  Good to find stuff that actually does what it is suppose to do without a lot of trash or casting about.
