Backup of files

Hi Support

My Torch 9810 is backing the phone onto my laptop using back up data file as dot bbb.  Recently I had the misfortune of trying to restore my data from my Laptop but the phone software does not recognize dot bbb files.  The restore only recognizes dot ipd files.  Please advise the following: -

1. how to do a restore from a dot bbb file; alternatively

2. how can I set up the backup to file the backup as a dot ipd file. 


Kind regards
