The BlackBerry is a versatile and popular smartphone. Using the BlackBerry Desktop Manager software, data may be backed up from and restored to the device. When BlackBerry data is backed up, the data is saved in an IPD file. IPD files are in binary format but using a freeware application named "MagicBerry IPD Editor and Converter," IPD files may be converted to Comma Separated Value format. In addition, MagicBerry provides the ability to split and manipulate IPD backup files.
