opening backed up file on desk top

I downloaded the desktop software yesterday in order to back up the info from my 9330 Curve.  I want to retrieve a text conversation in it's entirety and print it instead of sending each segment to my e-mail account.  When I click on the icon in my documents  the computer doesn't know how to open the file, whether to use windows word etc..  What do I check when I browse the list of possibilities?  Am I going to be able to view all of my texts when the file eventually opens? I have saved each message.  

 

If not is there another way to obtain an entire text conversation other than e-mailing each segment to my e-mail?

Re: opening backed up file on desk top

Hello,

 

The only application that can read the Backup (*.IPD) file is the BlackBerry Desktop Software. The only device that can use the backup file (database information) is a BlackBerry device with the BlackBerry operating system loaded  or a virtual device.

 

Not saying there isn't a 3rd party application that was created to do so, but none that are supported by RIM Smiley Tongue

 

Google "how to open blackberry backup file" and you may find something plus spyware -.-

Re: opening backed up file on desk top

What you can do is connect you're phone to the computer transfer the conversations from the computer to phone via transfer cable and open and try acces it by openingg it (there should be a option for view history) if not I'm sure there's some software that can open the history file for viewing.
