Is it possible to download iCloud backup to my computer? I have been trying to restore a backup online but I get an error message each time. I just want to download the file myself. Can someone recommend a way to access that files? Something similar to ibackupbot but for online backups. Any help or advices would be highly appreciated!
Do you have some really important files in your own backup and it makes you crazy that because you have no way to restore to them? The only way to get its data is to perform a restore to a device? Actually, restoring the entire iCloud backup to get them back is not an option since it may mean you lose some data on your device. And this process often leads to some unknown error. Don’t be anxious, iFonebox can easily help you download iCloud backup to parse its data on your computer. Here’re some of its main advantages:
- It can be used to extract/recover 17 different types of data including notes, videos, photos, voice memos, messages, contacts, call logs, WhatsApp data and many others.
- It can be used to recover data directly from an iOS device, making it the best data recovery tool if you lose data that wasn’t in any of your backups.
- You’re allowed to selectively recover/download data thanks to its preview function
- It comes with a clear and easy to navigate user interface
- The program can be done in a very short time and you don’t have to risk data loss
It seems that being able to back up to the cloud can be very useful, especially if you don’t have access to a computer or have infrequent access to one, however unless you specifically need to use iCloud for back up, you will find iFonebox more convenient and more reliable. In addition to saving iCloud backup to view its data, it can also help you selectively back your truly needed data up. At the same time, you can read them on your computer at any time.
You can download the program from our website or here. There’re two available versions: Windows version and Mac version. Please make sure to download and install the right version for your computer. Then I will show you the detailed instructions to get access to iCloud backup to see what is stored in it.
Step one: Run iFonebox and enter your Apple ID
Run the program, then just click the “Recover from iCloud Backup” at the top right of the software. You’ll be asked to sign in with your Apple ID account and password correctly.
Step two: Download data from iCloud backup
After you have selected an iCloud backup to download, it will start the downloading process. You can select all to download.
Step three: Scan data
Take photos for example, click on “Photos” icon to start scanning automatically. It will take some time, you should wait patiently.
Step four: Preview and download data
Now you can select the images you want and click “Recover to pc”, then the instruction is accomplished.
