The .DBK file extension belongs to files created by either Sony's "PC Companion" software or the older (Sony Ericsson) 'PC Suite' tool. Both applications are used to create backups of a user's personal data from Sony (or Sony Ericsson) phones.
These .DBK backup files typically contain phone settings and user data, such as:
- Contacts - SMS Messages - Calendar - Bookmarks - Tasks - Notes - Phone memory - Memory card data (such as Photos and Video etc)
The only known way to recover the above data from a DBK file is with AmrakSoftware's PhoneMiner software.
The .DBK format is heavily compressed to reduce file size and is actually a container file, meaning it is a single file that holds many different types of files (databases).
Once a .dbk backup file has been created on your computer, you are then able to restore the data back to your phone, again using the PC Companion's restore function.
