  • Why need an iPhone backup extractor?
    Why need an iPhone backup extractor? It's determined by the file type of the backup file. The iTunes/iCloud back-up file is just not a common file, but the SQlitedb file. It's not readable. Thus even you get the backup file, you won't get the content out of it, let alone restore to your iPhone. For this reason the iPhone backup extractor is developed.

    Well, there is certainly one more thing you have to notice. Don't synchronize your iPhone with iTunes or iCloud once you discover the data loss on your iPhone. Due to the fact iTunes & iCloud only updates the backup file when you synchronize with it, not to create a new backup file. So if you have synced your iPhone again, the backup file is going to be overwritten by the content on your iPhone, and the lost data will go forever.
