    Hello, I had a BlackBerry Tour, I uploaded it and backed it up a lot, I recently lost the phone, but had lots of valuable information stored. Where can I find that information on the computer? Its on Desktop Manager for a Mac.

    I'm not familiar with a Mac but I know on windows that back ups are stored as an .ipd file, seems sensible to try searching those files out.

    On Macs they're actually .bbb files. I found mine in /username/documents/BlackBerry Backups/*.bbb

    I suppose that's either the default location, or the location I specified. In any event, hopefully this points you in the right direction!!

    Thanks for stepping in. My Mac knowledge is very limited. I'm sure this will assist the OP.

    I don't think there is any way to view those files on a computer, never heard of it any way. Someone else might be more knowlegable to help you with this.

    But, you should just be able to do a restore in DM from the 9630 file to the 9700 and all that info will be on the 9700.
