Backup / Restore: Restore only settings of a certain App

Hi,

 

I broke my BBM message log. I guess it is stores at the Backups inside the "Apps" section. But the Backup File is about 1 Week old. Or is it inside the "Settings" section?

 

How to restore only the files for the BBM App?

 

Would be a mess if it would also replace the current data files of all the other Applications. The *.tar Files inside the backup file seems to be in a special format.

 

Best regards,

Helex
