Restoring SMS.bak Backup? Which app?
I had to reset my HTC Android the other day as it went into a booting loop that nothing would solve, but to my surprise the reset removed all my SMS text messages.
I know that at 8pm every day I had an app backup all my SMS, and I have a folder on my phone's SD card of /sdcard/smsbackup that contains a day old 1.41 MB file called sms.bak with recent texts in, in a non-csv, SQL Lite format.
I am not sure if this file contains all my thousands of messages, but I would like to restore it to find out. Does anyone know how I might do this please as I cannot find a suitable app on my phone with have a restore option that works with that file, or that doesn't just backup only.

*Some of my apps were uninstalled when I restored so there is a chance whichever app it was may have been removed.. which would explain why I can't find it.
**None of the Gmail backups ever worked more than once, once that had created their folders they were never able to write to them again, so I don't have any Gmail backups.
If anyone can help me restore my SMS from this file or find out which app created the backup I would much appreciate it.
