iBackup Extractor Options

This page explores some functionality not approached on the other entries. All options can be accessed by clicking the "Options" button in the top-right corner of the iBackup Extractor program.

Copy Options (Copy to PC/Mac)

This tab allows you to change the default save path. Whenever you save or extract files from your backups, this path will be selected by default to save you time. On the same point, you can choose whether iBackup Extractor will ask you to confirm a save location each time you extract a file with the "Request save destination before each copy operation".

iBackup Extractor options


The General tab provides the ability to set preferences such as whether iBackup Extractor checks automatically for updates and whether to display a pop-up message to let you know when a copy is complete.


From this tab, you can limit the number of messages which are loaded into the view panel. This is especially useful for users who have slower machines - loading only a few of the most recent messages of a large conversation can save lots of loading time if you are only looking for a certain message.

This tab also provides options on how to order your message conversations, and what information in displayed when copying the messages to your computer.


Clicking this tab will automatically start a check for updates for your current version of the software. If an update is found, a link will be provided so that you can quickly download the update.
