    Unable to extract data from a Huawei backup to another android phone? (Device Lost/Backup on PC)

    I lost my Huawei phone and decided to use this as an opportunity to move away from the controversial manufacturer.

    Fortunately, I have a backup dated in January of this year which will have a lot of my missing contacts. The Huawei back up folder is a plethora of ".DB" files that appears to be encoded. Therefore extracting them is proving difficult.

    Huawei customer services told me to buy a Huawei.
    Does anyone have any advice?

    Welcome to Android Central! Sorry, but these manufacturer-specific backup systems are pretty much always for that manufacturer -- they're not universal. So if you use Samsung backup systems, you can only restore to a Samsung device.
