I'm trying to get all my Messages (not E-Mail) and connected attachments out of a iOS 6 backup. I know there are tools like Wondershare Data Recovery for iTunes but they are not cheap and I'm trying to do this by my self with a self written python script.
I already know that the backups are stored here:
And in a specific backup (XY) the messages are stored in this file:
This is a SQlite database file, so I can access it in different ways (e.g. SQLite Manager add-on for Firefox).
Now where are the attachments? In the messages database file above I found a table called "attachment" and "message_attachment_join" which helps to get the right attachments to a single message. But the path in "attachment" is like:
I think this is the path on the iPhone. Where are all this files backuped to? In a backup directory I found three big files about 1.5 to 2.5 GB. Maybe they are stored there? But in which format, as a ZIP or TAR?
Does somebody know where I can find this files?
