A BACKUP extension file, as its name suggests, contains a backup created by various Android phones and tablets.
Android is an operating system initially intended for mobile phones, just like iOS, Symbian and Blackberry OS.
What makes it different is that it is based on Linux, a free, cross-platform free operating system kernel.
The system allows you to program applications in a variation of Java called Dalvik.
The operating system provides all the necessary interfaces to develop applications that access the phone's hardware functions, such as GPS, calls, calendar, etc. in a very simple way, in a well-known programming language such as Java.
That being said, the BACKUP file basically stores user information such as contacts and user files and is useful for archiving your mobile save points so that data can be restored if a problem occurs with the device.
BACKUP files are created through advanced startup mode or sometimes called bootloader, by holding down the power button and the volume button, and then choosing the option to backup user information.
When the backup is complete, the BACKUP files are saved to the SD card of the Android device.
Most likely, you will only find an Android BACKUP file on the SD card of the Android device.
Therefore, if you discover a BACKUP file on your computer, it is most likely created by a program on your computer, and not to be confused with the Android version.
Doing this can render your android device unusable when trying to restore a failed backup.
To restore a BACKUP file, first make sure it is an Android file and then follow the instructions:
Backup files are not designed to be opened manually by the user, nor to be edited. Doing this may damage the file and may also cause damage to the Android device.
If you downloaded a BACKUP file on Android device you can open it by following steps below:
