The nfb file extension was used for backups of Nokia phones created with Nokia PC Suite, prior version v6.82.

Latest backups are created with the nbu file extension instead. But there were also used files with nfc file extension in some versions of Nokia PC Suite.

A typical nfb file contains complete backup of phone including address book, messages, photos and such.

Should not be confused with nbf backups, which contain only side backup created by some Nokia phones.

This nfb file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete.
