change default back-up ext from .bbb to .ipd

Does anyone know how to get my device to create back-ups with a .ipd ext instead of a .bbb ext?  I know .bbb is what is created when backing up on a Mac, but I'm using Windows to back-up.  It doesn't seem like there is a setting in Desktop Manager to make this change so wonder if it's buried somewhere in the device settings?  Thanks!

There is no setting in the device to change the backup file extention - the windows version of Blackberry Desktop Manager would back up to *.ipd extension.

Re: change default back-up ext from .bbb to .ipd

Thanks, any tips on how to change the windows version of the BlackBerry Desktop Manager to *.ipd?  Currently, my windows version is creating back-ups with .bbb extension.  Note, I did put music onto my device using my home Mac using BB Desktop Manager, but it is so strange that the windows version of the BB Destop Manager is creating .bbb back-up files.  Appreciate your expertise!

The windows version backs up to IPD automatically and does this as default so unsure why yours is backing up and creating bbb files.

Re: change default back-up ext from .bbb to .ipd

In case you haven't found a solution, it works like a charm to recover data from .bbb backups with the BalckBerry Backup Extractor. Good luck to all!

Re: change default back-up ext from .bbb to .ipd

BB DM v5 and v6 creates backup with .ipd ext by default while v7 creates with .bbb and can restore .ipd ext as well.

Knowing this u can use the respective versions of BB DM accordingly.

This should help i think.

Re: change default back-up ext from .bbb to .ipd

Its funny how the OP asks a question and gets an answer for a different question!


 

You must have Blackberry Desktop Software 7 which automatically creates .bbb file. This will work as Blackberry has changed to .bbb now and you wont have an option to change to .ipd


 

Also people fail to mention Blackberry Extractor is not free and will only bring the first five entries of each database unless you pay for a key.
