iBackup Extractor can create a backup of your iOS device on your computer, as detailed in the User Guide.

Alternatively, use iTunes to create a backup. When you connect your iPod Touch, iPad or iPhone to iTunes on your computer, iTunes will perform a backup of all the data on your device. Using iBackup Extractor you can browse and extract the information held within these backup archives.

However, your iTunes preferences may not be set to produce these backups by default. With iTunes you can set up automatic device backup to your computer or manually start a device backup yourself.

  • Right click on your device from the Devices list in iTunes.

iTunes will create a back up of your iOS data. Once complete - restart iBackup Extractor to read and retrieve content from this backup.

Set up iTunes to automatically backup your iOS device.

You can set your preferences in iTunes so that iTunes will automatically backup your iOS data every time you sync your device to iTunes.

  • Connect your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to your computer and start iTunes.
  • In iTunes, click your devices in the Devices list on the left.
  • A summary screen is displayed about your device. Scroll down to the bottom of this summary screen to the "Back up" section.
  • Ensure that "Back up to this computer" is selected. (iBackup Extractor cannot read back ups from iCloud).
  • Ensure that "Encrypt local backup" is not checked. (iBackup Extractor cannot read encrypted backups).
  • Click the "Apply" button on the bottom right hand side of the iTunes window.

@sunil It is not possible via iTunes to do this, you may be able to use TouchCopy to extract these files from your iOS device to your PC/Mac. However, please note that much older files on your device may have been archived to save space and if so, TouchCopy cannot read these files. Please can you contact our Helpdesk for further assistance.
