Is There Any Way to Extract iTunes Backups?
Q: Every time I try to recover something from my iTunes backups, I end up rolling my iPhone back to a previous state. I got some of the lost files back, yes, but I lost everything newer than the backup. Now I know I was doing it wrong…Is there any easier way to recover lost files from iPhone? Because I’m definitely not going to restore from iTunes backups again. Perhaps someday I will when I need to recover from a factory reset, but definitely not for a mere deleted message or photo. Thanks in advance!
