Re: Nokia PC Suite - Where are the Backup Files

If you are talking about the backup files created by Nokia Content Copier, the extension is .nbu and the program tells you the location when backing up or restoring data from the phone.

Re: Nokia PC Suite - Where are the Backup Files

by default on windows xp, the back up file should be stored in C:\Documents and Settings\<User Name>\Application Data\Nokia\ContentCopier

 

cant tell u where it is on windows vista since i dont have it to check

 

bear in mind that the application data folder is hidden so u will need to unhide hidden folder first before being able to find it

if my post helped u out, please click the Star next to it to add some KUDOS to my name :smileyvery-happy:

Hi tinderboxuk,

 

If you had taken any backup for a phone, connect the phone using NOkia PC Suite, Use Content Copier, Select Restore option, the phone will start displaying the backup it had taken for that phone, otherwise you can scan for those files using Restore option itself :smileywink: Dont you find this very easy and simple

I can find the backup files using pc suite without any problems, but as i said i want to copy them to my d: drive.

 

I have unhidden the entire c: drive and searched for  .nbu .ncc .nfb .nfc .ngr all nokia backup extensions without result.

 

I am using Vista and have checked in every directory for my user name.

 

Thanks for the help.

 

EDIT : I managed to find the backup files, they were in the directory i had created on my d: drive for my nokia games and software with the extension .nbu , how they got there i dont know?

Re: Nokia PC Suite - Where are the Backup Files

It's found in this default link
C:\Users\home\AppData\Roaming\Nokia\ContentCopier
Note that AppData is hidden folder. So first select show hidden files and folders in folder options.
