Android Central Question

I downloaded my Galaxy S7 files with Samsung Switch but can't read them on my PC windows 10. It just all looks like coding of some computer language. How can I read those files? Or find something that will convert them back to what they look like on the phone. There are no lables for any of the files. for example here is one of the file names, _9cWX4SWsUd.js.download

Yeah. Samsung Switch backups are mostly proprietary backup files. You normally aren't supposed to be able to read them.
