I have a playbook that got really bogged down with App data (1.5 GB). I backup it up to my PC, and wiped it. It runs really smoothly, but now, I would like to put back some of the app data, but not all of it. Is there a way to only re-install some of the data? I know that the *.bbb is just a zipped file, but within there there is a app.tar, but opening using a tar supported program doesn't seem to work.
Has someone else come across this? and hopefully found a solution.

I have tried all normal mac and linux tools to open the tar file and got nowhere. it's probably a security feature to allow only the blackberry id owner to access the backup file. Not helpful!
Even if you opened the tarball I don't see how you could load back app data manually.

Thank you for your comments. I will see what happen if I load back the 1.5GB app data, and see if the playbook takes it all, even if not all the apps are re-installed.
