That was the only recent one.
I called RIM and paid for their incident-based support. They asked me to email them the backup file, and it didn't work on their side either. And they couldn't fix my problem... a waste of fifty buck
(RIM support are next to useless--I highly recommend people avoid paying them regardless of what the problem is)
Eventually I opened the file with ABC Amber BlackBerry Converter and I could read most of the settings and info, and manually reentered it in the phone. I took a full day.
