I used twrp on my mortorola Atrix and it was possible to extract backup content on my pc with 7zip (.win files).
So perhaps it's a newer twrp version used here and backup files are criated in a different way ?
I also faced this strange thing when restoring with twrp: http://forum.xda-developers.com/xper...-twrp-t2836727

So I'm now using cwm ... but it is slower.

new backup method i think,

even if you cant extract with pc it doesnt mean that it doesnt work in recovery

i personally use twrp as i dont trust cwm and this is due to me using cwm on my first android phone till now cwm always failed with something and twrp worked fine always

I found a way to manage twrp backup files on PC: with TotalComander and renaming files as .tar
This wasn't necessary with twrp on Motorola Atrix (can be open with 7zip), but the version with Xperia is different.
