Hi aliregman1986 and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums!


BlackBerry smartphone backup files are only designed to be restored to a BlackBerry smartphone. To view the contents, you will have to use the BlackBerry Desktop Software to restore the file to your device or an alternate device.
