This is really helpful. http://sourceforge.net/projects/nbuexplorer/ I have tried the above links before this post and were saying either removed attachment or forceful sign up. 

On the other hand , this link had simple download link , and screen shots for more assistance.

Thanks so much again.

Re: How to open backup files?? .nbu?

Try NokiGems - it's a Nokia backup filer merger for SMS. You can select the SMS from different sources and merge them together as a restorable  .nbu.

Re: How to open backup files?? .nbu?

Nokia didn't open and document on .nbu format. It's much harder to write a full featured .nbu editor than a reader.

Re: How to open backup files?? .nbu?

already talked with author of NBU Explorer and I know now how hard it is to make it possible for Symbian phones even...

 

I have got another idea - somehow change the PC Suite to backup that one file from one phone to restore it to another phone. :smileyvery-happy: but i can't make it possible.

 

If someone wanna know the reason why it is so important for me, contact me somehow personally to not make it public. Thanks.

Re: How to open backup files?? .nbu? - And more

Well now with the nbu explorer we can extract the contacts to Vcard format in windows..

 

Now the issue with me.

 

On my E51 , under each contact i have multiple numbers with the same title

 

Eg.  

 

SAM

Home: 12345

Home: 677889

 

 

and when i export it to windows vcard format .. only Home:12345 is saved and the other one is not..

 

As i understand due to duplicate entries of only title it takes only the 1st one.

but in NBU explorer i can see both the numbers..

how do i extract this to a excel file so that i can have all the numbers and just change the coloumn headding ?

Ive got 1330 contacts and under each contact atleast 3 - 4 numbers .. I dont want to spend time going to each contact and changing the title headding from Home to Home1 or home2 ..which will fix the issue but will consume a whole load of my time.

 

Please help.

How do I restore .nbu file into Nokia Suite ??

I recently backed up data from my Nokia N97 mini onto a computer via Nokia Suite. I now have a different computer and so I installed Nokia Suite in this new computer .  Now I want to put the messages into my new computer's Nokia Suite . I do not have my phone any more as I have lost it . Plus there is some problem in the old system . The only thing which I am left with is the .nbu file . So how do I transfer this .nbu file onto the new Nokia Suite ?????

Re: How do I restore .nbu file into Nokia Suite ??

You can put them anywhere on your computer... when selecting restore from the backup menu in Nokia Suite you have the option to browse for your .nbu files.

Re: How to open backup files?? .nbu?

Thank you for the program you have provided at  http://sourceforge.net/projects/nbuexplorer

 

 I have just used the Nbu Explorer to successsfully open a back up file kept on an external hard drive to access contacts and memos from my old N9 phone (which had a malfunction at the same time as my laptop, isn't that always the way!) 

 

Can these recovered files be imported to my new windows phone -Lumia 800 ?

Also, my calender does not seem to appear in the back up - will I find it anywhere?

(I did not have a calender set up on my previous laptop so perhaps it wasn't synced)
