    There seems to be a lot of confusion surrounding the new *.bbb BlackBerry Backup file format. I'm wondering if I can get some straight answers and maybe a little assistance.

    1) Does the older *.ipd file exist inside the *.bbb file (ie - is the *.bbb file really a zip file that contains the *.ipd plus other files and data)?

    2) Would anyone be willing to (privately) provide me with a sample *.bbb file (and matching *.ipd, if possible) to analyze?

    I'm a programmer working on an existing piece of software that opens and extracts data from *.ipd files. We are trying to update the software for some of our customers, however I don't have ready access to a backup file myself. If possible, please comment below or send me a private message or email. All data would be kept strictly confidential and private.

    You simply need to install the newer version of BDM, then backup any device you choose.
