"Download includes adware and advertising toolbar"

April 08, 2013  |  By tglit76

 |  Version: Elcomsoft Blackberry Backup Explorer 10.02

Pros

I can't say because I didn't install it.

Cons

"Express Install" includes an ad-ridden search bar. Luckily I clicked on Custom Install and declined it.

The download of the install package included two viruses that Security Essentials fortunately removed.

Summary

Between the virus alerts and the sneaky toolbar I decided not to install it. Will do a system recover just to make sure that nothing else slipped through.

"Unable to open large IPD files"

May 28, 2012  |  By stedemi

 |  Version: Elcomsoft Blackberry Backup Explorer 9.6

Pros

None as the software does not open large IPD files

Cons

Unable to cope with a mere 300mb ipd file
The software goes into "out of memory" regardless of the machine used. Non existent customer services!!! beware of their terms and conditions. Software is not refundable

"Very simple and feature-rich."

April 26, 2012  |  By FlappingCrane

 |  Version: Elcomsoft Blackberry Backup Explorer 9.5

Pros

Very intuitive to use. Quick access to the all the databases in the backup file.

Cons

I only downloaded this to open my Password Safe, which is not able to opened with the free trial. I wasn't able to use it for the purpose I downloaded it.

Summary

I am switching my password database to another application that is available across several devices and operating systems, so I needed to get all my data out of the Password Safe on my Blackberry. There is no native way to export this data. The Elcomsoft Blackberry Backup Explorer, however, has the functionality to export databases to text files - just what I needed! BUT... In order to open the Password Safe database, the paid version of the software is required and I'm not going to buy it for this one-off situation.

However, the app was easy to install (on my Windows XP system) and very intuitive to use (I didn't have to consult any help guide to open my backups and browse through them). The menu interface wasn't cluttered and the data layout was clean. I have to give this software a 4-star review even though I wasn't able to do what I wanted. It is not Elcomsoft's fault that I want access to a secure database without paying for the solution. I am kind of happy they put that level of security in their trialware, truthfully.
