Default BBB Files Needed

Please Login to Remove!

There seems to be a lot of confusion surrounding the new *.bbb BlackBerry Backup file format. I'm doing my best to sift through it all and I'm hoping some of you may be able to help me.

Let me give you a little background first:
I'm a software developer, recently hired. I was just tasked with updating some existing software that opens and extracts data from *.ipd backup files. I'm trying to understand how the new file format works, and I need a little help.

I believe that all of the following is true:
1) Up until earlier this year, the PC version of the Desktop Manager saved backups in *.ipd format
2) Up until earlier this year the Mac version of the Desktop Manager saved backups in *.bbb format which was a zip file that contained the *.ipd file in it
3) With the release of the Desktop Manager v7 (PC) the *.bbb file is now used by all backups, but is a new file format (Backup File Format v2) which is a zip file containing *.dat files

So this is where I need some help. I am not a BlackBerry user myself, so I don't have access to any backups. Would anyone be willing to (privately) provide me with a sample *.bbb file (and matching *.ipd, if possible) to analyze? If possible, please comment below or send me a private message or email. All data would be kept strictly confidential and private.

Try to download "ABC Amber BlackBerry Converter" or "Magic Berry"
Hope this is the solution which u have asked for.
If those doesn't work then try to install compatible version and extract the backup files (This might not be a good solution though)
