Need to restore calendar

When syncing my BB to my PC last night, all my past calendar items got deleted.  I have found a backup folder on my PC and see that there are lots of files in this folder.  One is dated two days ago.  The files extensions are .BB .  Can I use this file to restore my calendar?  If so, how?  When I click on it, it says Windows cannot open this file."  Can something walk me through what to do?  Should I be opening it somehow using the BB software on my PC? 

Thank you

Re: Need to restore calendar



You can find Restore instructions via the Backup link in my auto-sig on this post. You will most likely want to do a selective restore of only those databases you require (e.g., Contacts).


Good luck!
