What is an MBK file?

An MBK file is a backup file for a MediaTek-powered mobile phone, including certain Alcatel, Motorola, and Vodafone phones. It contains a copy of the applications, contacts, text messages, and media files stored on a phone. MBK files are created by various backup utilities, such as Alcatel One Touch Manager and SmartMoto.

More Information

Most mobile devices can link to a PC-based backup utility that allows users to back up their device's files. Some of the backup utilities that Alcatel, Motorola, and Vodafone phones use save users' backed-up files in an MBK file. Users can then use the MBK file to restore their mobile device's data (in the event of a data loss) or transfer their data to another device.

For example, those who use Alcatel One Touch phones can link their phone to Alcatel One Touch Manager, a Windows application, and back up their phone's data. When they do, One Touch Manager creates an MBK file. The user can then use One Touch Manager and their MBK file to restore their phone's data or transfer the data to another One Touch phone.

How to open an MBK file

If you possess an MBK file, you can likely use your mobile phone's backup utility to transfer the data your MBK file contains to your mobile phone. For more specific instructions, refer to the documentation you received with your mobile phone and/or backup utility.
