Not able to explore backup files

Dec 20, 2014 at 5:42 PM
Am I wrong to think that DroidExplorer is able to let me explore backup files (created with adb backup)?

I rightclick on the ab file and am presented with 3 options, none of which work unless I connect my phone (which I do not want as I just want to explore the backup file). The Unpack option asks for a password (there is none on the file) and I just click enter and nothing more happens.

When I connect my phone, I am able to browse the contents of the phone, so something is working. I cannot open a console (adb shell works fine, though).
