Popularity: (Uncommon)

MDB Files are backup files created with the PC Link 2000 software developed by Samsung. PC Link 2000 is a deprecated application used for syncing older Samsung phones like the T300 or the M100 Uproar with the PC.
 
The MDB file format was used for saving all Phonebook contacts and the phone’s Personal
Information Manager into a single file and for restoring them or transferring them
to another device. To restore all data from a MDB file the device needs to be
connected to the computer and recognized by PC Link 2000 or Samsung Kies.
 
If the application is not installed on the computer or if the device is experiencing
connection problems, contact information can be extracted manually by opening
the MDB file with Microsoft Access.
