iBackup Extractor allows you to pull pieces of information out of your iPhone backups and work with it.
Easy navigation: iBackup Extractor is easy to use. Everything is well-labeled, and the design is modern and intuitive.
File access: The absolute best thing about this app is the number and type of files you're able to extract from the backup. You can recover your contacts, which is vital for many, but also data like voicemails and text messages.
Installer difficulty: The installer jammed on more than one occasion during program testing. The program installer came in an MSI format, and it had difficulty installing even after a restart.
Unclear help: When trying to learn how to perform specific tasks or troubleshoot, the help was not very illuminating.
iBackup Extractor is a powerful recovery utility. You can target the specific data that you need, such as contacts or messages, and recover them quickly and effectively.
