What is an LBF file?

An LBF file is a backup file created by backup software that comes pre-installed on LG Android phones. It contains a copy of the applications, contacts, messages, calendar entries, media, and settings stored on a phone. Multiple LG backup apps, including LG Backup and LG Mobile Switch, support LBF files.

More Information

LG phones running the Android operating system typically have a pre-installed proprietary backup app. These apps allow you to manually back up your phone's data and save it in an LBF file.

If you want to transfer your data to another LG phone running Android, you can do so by transferring your LBF file to the phone and opening it with the phone's LG backup app. Typically, the backup app allows you to restore all of the data in an LBF file or select portions of the data. For example, LG Mobile Switch enables you to restore all of your personal data, media data, and downloaded apps or specific parts.

How to open an LBF file

You can use LG Mobile Switch (Android) to restore data stored in an LBF file. To do so, open the app and follow its instructions for retrieving files from a backup.

You can also use Cellebrite Physical Analyzer and Cellebrite Reader (Windows) to decode LBF files and LBFtool (multiplatform) to extract the files an LBF file contains.
