    S8, backup restored, where do I find the messages? Do they go to a file?

    SMS messages are kept, by the messaging app, in a database file. They're backed up from there, and restored to there. (It's not a file you can get to unless you're the messaging app or the phone is rooted. [Which is why the backup/restore app has to become the default SMS app to do backups and restores.])
