Re: Use BB desktop software with no connected BB

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

If you have used the Desktop Software to backup your device to your computer, then the files containing the data are there...they will be either with extension of IPD or BBB, depending on the version of the Desktop Software you used. However, those files are of a proprietary format, and natively only useful as the source of restore to another BB device. Refer to the Backup link in my auto sig on this post for information regarding backup/restore.

 

There are 3rd party PC apps that can parse the BBB/IPD files and present them in a usable format on your computer. A few minutes on your favorite Internet search engine should provide to you candidate apps for this purpose.

 

Good luck!
