If you're on Linux, Adebar contains a tiny little shell script to convert ADB Backups (.ab) to tar files, which you then easily can investigate with any archive manager. Only limitation is: it doesn't work on password protected backup files. The basic command it runs (everything else mainly is a wrapper for command line options and syntax) is: dd if=$1 ...

I am using an app called FolderSync (paid version) to pack up my photos to cloud. You can set automatic delete of the local files, after transferring them. But with this you can't use Google+ 's automatic upload.

Though not directly related to your question, this does answer it in a very round-about way. I found this blog which gives directions on how to open the file and modify contents. My reasoning is that if the file opens then it should probably be ok. Here's the link: http://nelenkov.blogspot.in/2012/06/unpacking-android-backups.html I'd really love if anyone ...

There is an app called "flickr uploader", since flickr offer 1TB free it's pretty convenient. This app allows you to auto backup all your pictures to flickr and it has an option to delay the backup so you can delete blurry photos, for example, and of course, the option to delete the photo from the phone 24 hours after successfully uploaded.

adb logcat outputs the BackupManager activities, so you can monitor if the process is running or stalled.

Only with ICS (4.0), permissions of the ADB daemon have been alleviated to enable this (see: Full Backup of non-rooted devices). For ...

bmgr restore package doesn't reinstall an app: it sends a signal to the installed app to make it restore its data from backup. If the app isn't installed, you get the error message you saw. It's the Play Store app that's responsible for installing other apps. If you like, you can think of the list of installed apps as Play Store's backup data, and it ...

Very likely, you need to adb push them to the appropriate folder in your /data/ partition which is different than your /sdcard/ partition.
