  1. Ok, have created the file .snbkp file with all my notes. If I place the sd card into my PC I can open the file with 7zip or winrar. All the files seems to be there, but If I want to open one of them... it ask me for a password !!! Any of my notes are locked, and I never put a password when created the file, so.. what password was used to protect the backup files??? What If I place the SD CARD INTO ANOTHER PHone in order to restore???

  2. I'm face the same problem. My S4 has broken and I have a backup of my memos in .snbkp file. As Abel told, I can open it on a WinRar or Winzip and I've been asked for a password. So could someone help us? Witch password is that? Or, not having another Galaxy in place, how can I open this .snbpk file?
    Thanks a lot

  3. I had had my memo from my old phone saved to my drop box with notes that date back to 2013, I want those files back so bad. If anyone can find a fix to this password stuff...please let me know, email:
