There are a few desktop tools out there that let you parse through BlackBerry backup files in the IPD format. There are even a few tools out there that let you edit the backup files with my favorite being MagicBerry. The BBCool team spotted a new website, BerryGrab, that has a different take on handling BlackBerry backup files. It lets you upload the backup file and notifies you when it has been imported into their database. From there you can display the information in the backup in a much easier to view format and then even export it as a CSV or other file format.
At first I was wondering why you would want such a service but the interesting thing is that BerryGrab stores you backups when you upload them. That means if you lose them it is backed up on their servers. I am not sure how comfortable I feel about uploading all my BlackBerrys personal info to a 3rd party but I will leave that up to you to decide.
