I have an app from which I'd like to extract some data, it's no longer being updated and will stop working as soon as I upgrade to iOS 11 due to sun setting of 32 bit support.
The app contains two files, one .bak and a .dat. Opening with a text editor shows the files to be SQLite related. (The first line states SQLite). Some of my data is visible in the file, but portions of it are in unreadable characters.
I tried using razorsql to convert the file into something I can query but no luck. Is there anything else I can try?
Edit: The app is an expenses tracker, SpendingLite. I'm not sure what it used to store the data but my best guess would be either SQLite or Core Data.
I tried to import both the .dat and the .bak into razorsql as a SQLite backup. It showed the same scrambled text as I saw when I used a text editor to open it.
I also made a copy of the file and tried to convert it into CSV, no luck there either.
