Re: Restore Backup Error

From memory, the *.cab file is the backup of files on the internal memory. Their should be an accompanying *.ipd or *.bbb file that is the actual backup of settings tc that you need.

Re: Restore Backup Error

Blackberry backups are either in IPD or BBB format. Blackberry Desktop Manager does not recognize .cab files, that is why you are having issues restoring it back to your phone. Restore the BBB file you have instead. If you just need particular files in the backup, you can extract BBB backups using Blackberry Backup Extractor.
