iPhone Backup Extractor is a free, small, and portable tool which can extract files from iTunes backups of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch data. It lets you easily extract the contacts, calendar events, text messages, notes, photos, videos, call histories, and more from the idevice backups stored on your computer.
With this, you can recover the required data from backups instead of doing a full restore. Also, if you lose or break your phone then you can get the important data back from the backup itself without needing the phone.
Supports: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Mac OS X, and Linux.
Note – The free version doesn’t allow to recover of lots of files in one go.
