Basically I no longer have an iPhone got stolen I have a htc one m8 for the time being waiting for the iPhone 6 or to buy a 5s off craigslist any way I wanted to recover my pictures from this iTunes back up but i am having trouble I can see the backup with Aibe software but it says the files are damaged when I try to look at them.


is there any FREE software to extract my iTunes backup I download one and it would view the pictures but wanted me to pay $49.99 for the software ( I do know the password to my encrypted back up) Thanks in advanced !

You can restore your next iPhone from the backup and the photos will show up in the photos app. If you want to try to access them before getting a new iPhone, you can try a backup extractor program, but they have limited support for encrypted backups.

I Googled "free backup extractor" and provided you with a link for a program that has a free version. It says the free version extracts photos.

Thanks but it only allows 2 photos and wants you to purchase the software
