Extract contacts from sony experia Z1 compact back up file

How can I extract my contacts from a Sony Experia backup file. The backup were created with Experia Companion v1.7.2.0.

The backups have no file extension its just "fullbackupdata"

Re: Extract contacts from sony experia Z1 compact back up file

Hi @keniajin,


Welcome to the community,


Xperia Companion uses a very different structure to back up content, you will notice that the contents and files all seem to have a very strange string of numbers/letters.


These backups are not intended to be extracted and used on a PC they are purely used to restore content onto Sony Mobile devices.


In this case, I cannot advise how you would achieve such a task.


I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
