DBK File Format

mobile phone backup files generated by Sony Ericsson PC Suite

DBK is a file extension used for mobile phone backup files generated by Sony Ericsson PC Suite, which manages syncing and other functions for Sony Ericsson mobile phones.

DBK files created with Sony Ericsson PC Suite store contact data and other information in a compressed format. To decompress a DBK file outside Sony Ericsson PC Suite, the user should rename the file extension to .ZIP and open it with a .ZIP decompression utility. DBK files are also associated with FJ Software Development’s MyPhoneExplorer, which can also be used to manage a Sony Ericsson mobile phone.

DBK is also the extension used for backup files for dataBased Intelligence’s dBASE .DB2 and .DBF database files. The DBK file extension is also associated with schematic backup files created by Cadence OrCAD (Computer Aided Drafting) solutions.
