IPD File

Did your computer fail to open an IPD file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .IPD files.

What is an IPD file?

Files that contain the IPD file extension are backup files of the data that you have stored on your BlackBerry mobile device. These files are created when your BlackBerry device is backed up to your computer.

IPD files can store data about your user address book, emails, SMS messages and other BlackBerry information depending on which files you choose to back up when syncing your device with your computer.

The IPD file format was created for back-up and restore purposes by Research In Motion Limited to prevent BlackBerry users from losing their important information should their BlackBerry become lost or damaged.
