I use to store older backups of my iPad, iPod and iPhone made using iTunes.
So, as long as some data (i.e: photos) is stored on one of these backups, I feel free to delete it on the devices.
If, in a future, I need only some specific data (say music, document, video, email... etc), may I access to the backup to...? :
- Browse it to see what is there inside.
- Extract some specific info.
If yes, what kind of data could be extracted? :
- Only files like photos, videos or documents?
- Or is it possible to dig for some more complex data like SMSs, notes, emails, phone lists... etc?
Remember that I don't want to restore any backup. I just want to look inside it. Also, I don't want recommendations on software that reads the files. I'm looking for how to understand what's on the filesystem.
