Supported file formats
The application is able to work with different file formats, such as NBU, NFB, NBF, ARC, MMS, ZIP, CDB and NFC.
In other words, NbuExplorer is a dedicated tool for opening and extracting files from a Nokia backup file, regardless if it was created with PC Suite or the newer Ovi Suite.
The interface is very clean and easy to use, with the contents of the backup files displayed directly inside the main window.
Check out the content stored within backup files
It displays not only internal files, but also memos, bookmarks, calendar entries and contacts, while all the messages are grouped under a different tab for better organization.
There is no help file included in the package, which means beginners may have some problems trying to figure out how to use the application.
Experienced users on the other hand can benefit from the addition of a third tab called “File parsing log,” which enables them to determine the source of some errors that may appear when trying to extract content.
NbuExplorer works like a charm on all Windows workstations, and it doesn't even matter how fast it is because it remains light on computer performance all the time.
As a conclusion, NbuExplorer is one of the best ways to deal with Nokia backups, carrying out its purpose flawlessly. It's a keeper for all Nokia phone owners. If you want to skip the installation steps, you can check out the portable version of the program, which can be found here.
