I’ve searched but cannot find an answer to this situation. I backed up my iPhone 6 to my windows computer. I know the location of the backup file. I do not use the iCloud backup, I prefer keeping my backups on my machine. Question is, how to see the detailed content of the backup? Thanks in advance!
You can’t see what files you have in a backup, only what data they’re backed up and how much space they take up. There are times when you accidentally delete or lose just one important piece of data and you want to get it back. If the lost data is included in your most recent iTunes backup, to restore your device from iTunes, you would lose all of the new data on the device. The main question is how to see and extract information of the iTunes backup without restoring the whole backup file.
