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, create and use LBF files.

More Information

LG phones that run the Android operating system typically come with a pre-installed proprietary backup app. These apps allow users to manually back up their phones' data and save that data in an LBF file.

If a user wants to transfer their data to another LG phone running Android, they can do so by transferring their LBF file to that phone and opening it in the phone's LG backup app. Typically, the backup app allows users to restore all the data an LBF file contains or select portions of the data. For example, LG Mobile Switch allows a user to restore their personal data, media data, and/or downloaded apps.

How to open an LBF file

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

You can also use LBFtool (multiplatform) to extract the files an LBF file contains.
