One of the best ways to back up the data on your iOS device is through iTunes. It is easy to do, all you have to do is connect the device to a computer with iTunes installed on it and you鈥檙e done. When you lose data on your device, getting it back is as easy as simply restoring the device from the latest iTunes backup.

If you back up your device on iTunes regularly, some of the deleted data on your device may already be on an iTunes backup. iTunes will also regularly backup the database on your iPhone and sometimes the deleted data may be included in the backup.

The Best Way to Recover Data from an iTunes Backup

Everyone knows that restoring a backup is one of the quickest way to get deleted data back, if it is on that backup. But it is not always efficient since it requires erasing all the contents and data on your device. What if you only lost a few videos? It wouldn鈥檛 make a lot of sense to erase the entire device (including all un-backed up data) just to get back one or two videos.

Lucky for you we have a more efficient solution in the form of iMyFone D-Back, an iPhone data recovery tool that is easy to use and will have you extracting just the data you need for any iTunes backup file without having to restore the device. The following are some of its features.
