.nbf File Extension

Developer: Nokia
File type: Nokia Backup File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .nbf. Files with the file extension .nbf can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .nbf files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .nbf file?

A Nokia backup file is a copy of data stored in supported Nokia mobile phones, and these Nokia backup files are implemetned with encoding specifications proprietary to Nokia. These encoding specifications are used for saving these Nokia backup files in the NBF file format. The Nokia PC Suite software is an application designed to faciliate data transmissions between a compatible Nokia mobile phone and a computer running on a system integrated with support for these compatible Nokia mobile phone devices. The Nokia PC Suite application can be used to create these Nokia backup files. Appended with the .nbf extension, the content of these Nokia backup files may include contact numbers and address details of phone book entries, text and SMS (Short Mesaging Service) and MMS (Multimedia Mesaging Service) data stored in the mobile phone among other pieces of information. These Nokia backup files can be used to restore these pieces of data from the associated NBF files, so users can transfer the recovered data back to their Nokia mobile phones. There is a version of the Nokia PC Suite application for Microsoft Windows-based systems.

Nokia Suite

Nokia Suite

Nokia Suite, formerly Nokia Ovi Suite, is an application for Nokia users to hook up their devices with Microsoft Windows. It can synchronize contacts, calendar, messages, photos, videos and music between a Nokia device and a PC. Mobile devices utilize the Symbian OS for installations and the installer archives used by Symbian are known as SIS files. Well known mobile devices utilize Symbian OS, meaning SIS files are important in almost all mobile devices especially when it comes to installing applications. It requires "makesis" command line tool in generating SIS files and this tool comes with the CreateSIS program. SIS files can be opened by moving them to the suitable mobile device or the device using the Symbian OS but most of the time, SIS files are helpful for setting up themes in an S60 phone. After SIS files are moved, they can be viewed on the mobile device. Mobile phone programs such as the Nokia Suite can open SIS files. This is an application that enables the transfer of data on the computer such as photos, music and videos to the mobile phone and vice versa.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .nbf files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .nbf. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
