Technology has bid adieu to paper and pen, where you used to note down the contacts, addresses, and other important notes. You can now store all the details at the touch of the button on your iPhone. Additionally, Apple gives you the chance to backup files from your device. However, the same technology also deletes the content at the touch of a button. When you delete something accidentally or lost data due to virus attack or an update, you may need to extract a specific data from iCloud Backup instead of using reset and restore function to erase all the data on your iPhone.

However, you should note that you cannot access the files present in it, and the only way to know what you lost or deleted accidentally is by restoring the content onto the device.
