Hi there and welcome
You can extract it using a program called winrar but you still wont be able to see the data in it as the PC cannot interpret ate it Tom. The only use for it is to restore it to another LG Vista phone.
what data where you hoping to get? As we may be able to get it from somewhere else.
I did a backup and restore. the restore failed to restore about 6 applications and more importantly restored none of my test message history. Can these items be restored? How?
The backup still seems to be on the sim card and I have not rewritten it.
Ok, the backup will not save to the SIM so I think you mean the SD Card Tony.
Are you trying to restore onto another LG Vista?
