Before you get started, make sure your device is not creating an automatic backup while our software is recovering your files. If you recover files with our tool and creating a backup automatically to iCloud or iTunes, it’s possible that the recovery process could interfere with the files backup up at the same time.
Restoring your iPhone from iCloud backups doesn’t always come handy because often users want to recover only one file or one data or app category. The iPone Backup Extractor lets you explore the content of a backup and selectively restore them. Once you have access to your latest iCloud backups, you can recover and restore individual files, without restoring older iCloud backups. Let's get started.
- Download and install the latest iPhone Backup Extractor version;
- Purchase a license that suits you: Premium or Business. Learn more about each license on our website;
- Add your iCloud account;
- Choose the right device and download the right backup version;
- Preview files, photos, messages and chats before recovering them;
- Click extract and save your recovered files.
Read full instructions below.
1. Select the iCloud backup
Download and install the official version of iPhone Backup Extractor from our site. A Premium license is required for iCloud support.
If you want to recover or restore files from more than 5 devices you need a Business plan.
Click on the “+” button and add an iCloud account. User credentials are never stored, and the connection is secure and encrypted.
2. Download the iCloud backup
Selected a device, then a backup, and download it locally.
Unplug your device from a power source and disconnect it from WiFi to prevent it from overwriting backup files.
If you have an iPhone with a larger internal storage than the iCloud storage, iPhone Backup Extractor will download and recover or restore only what's been synced with a current or older iCloud backup.
3. Preview and extract
Once the backup has been downloaded go to “Overview” and check out which data categories are available. Use “Preview” mode for anything you’d like to preview first, such as messages, photos or Notes.
Use the “Expert mode” to recover individual files, databases, and to edit backup files - most useful in forensics. Use the “App view” mode to recover or restore files from installed apps.
Selected files are recovered and saved on your computer.
