The latest iBackup Extractor cannot handle my password protected iPhone backup (made under latest iTunes under OS X 10.9.5 Mavericks). iBackup Extractor claims the password would be wrong, while I am certain to have entered the password actually in use to encrypt my backups. As a consequence, the application is not usable. This is a very basic fault, please advise what is going on.

@aussie If iBackup Extractor is asking for a password, this means that your backup is encrypted. You will need to enter the backup encryption password to access the contents of the backup. This will be the password that was set when backup encryption was enabled on your device.

@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.
