@mohsen You may need to try backing up your device to a different location on your PC/Mac as iBackup Extractor may be having difficulty reading the backups from their current location on your PC/Mac.

I have the latest version of your application. Is this a Yosemite issue and or the latest itunes issue. Please help it seems I purchased a product that will not work. Can I get a refund or can you fix?
