How to open PIB files

Did your computer fail to open a PIB file? We explain what PIB files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your files.

What is a PIB file?

PIB files are PIM Backup files, which you can read more about below.

The PIB file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So a PIB opener may not be able to open all kinds of PIB files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
