About BlackBerry Backups

EPB allows you to decrypt BlackBerry backups created by the BlackBerry Desktop Software

Backups created by BlackBerry Link (for BlackBerry 10 devices including BBOS are supported as well, but you need to know the BlackBerry ID password of the user who created the backup.

By default, BlackBerry backups are stored in the following folders:

Windows: My Documents\BlackBerry\Backup.

macOS: /Users/<name>/Documents/BlackBerry Backups.
NOTE: You can change the default location for the backup folder on macOS in the following settings file: ~/Library/Preferences/com.rim.blackberrylink.plist.

When running EPB on Windows OS, you can recover the password to the backup before decrypting it.
