I have a habit that before I update the iOS version of my iOS devices, I will make an iTunes backup to my computer in case of data losing. However, when I sync my iPhone to my iTunes, I find that I can not view the data in my previous iTunes backup, just a folder. Is there any way to extract and view early data from these iTunes backupfolders?
