In case you delete any of these files by mistake, or your device gets infected with malicious software, it can come in handy to be able to recover the lost information using your personal computer.
Recover files from an iOS device or iTunes backup file
PhoneRescue is an application that offers a solution for these kind of situations, by enabling you to retrieve deleted data from iOS devices, such as iPhones, iPads or iPods, as well as from iTunes backup files. These files can range from contacts and messages, all the way to more advanced data types, like photo streams, iBooks and videos.
After the scan process is completed, the application displays the number of found files for each category and you can manually choose which to recover, in case you do not want the whole content saved on your computer. You can also preview the data before you start the recovery and check whether it is complete.
Choose the preferred output formats and export location
PhoneRescue enables you to customize the resulting files by choosing their output format and location. Call history and messages can be retrieved as HTML documents, while contacts, calendars and notes can be saved as plain text CSV files. You can also choose a different export location for the recovered documents, in case you want to create a separate folder on your disk.
As far as the other files are concerned, such as videos and photos, they are retrieved in their original format, which keeps their original resolution and quality intact during the process. The same is true for App data, which includes audio, video and text documents.
If you run into trouble with your iOS device and you accidentally delete your messages or contacts, PhoneRescue can lend a helping hand and recover anything you might have lost. The wizard-like interface requires only a few easy steps to complete the recovery and it is intuitive enough for anyone to take full advantage of.
