Question N86 backup file location

I recently had some problems with my 16 gig memory card so had to do a backup of all the contents of the phone as well as memory card, then I could send the memory card off for replacement. It took quite a while and I didn't have another memory card with enough capacity to restore the whole backup file so I essentially started a fresh. now the replacement memory card is here i'd like to merge all of the backup files with the ones I've created since starting a fresh.

Can anyone direct me to where the backup files are kept on my computer (Vista) or suggest a way of merging these files. I've read that restoring a backup from PC Suite just overwrites whats there now.

Thanks in advance,

One simple way is to search for .nbu files on your computer

Or once you connect your phone,

in XP this is how it behaves,

Connect your phone in pc suite mode, Open Nokia PC Suite Content Copier,

Backup > Select the data you want to take backup > next > you can select the folder where you want to store your backup file
There is no substitute for hardwork


backup, file, location, merge, n86, pc suite, restore
