I just realized a bunch of messages I had on my phone X have been deleted! I backed my iPhone to iTunes. So where would my messages be? How can I restore them? Thanks in advance!

And usually an iTunes backup couldn’t be completed or you can’t restore from it. Thus users are looking for more, they are asking for the advanced options the other apps are providing, like the selective data restoration or getting a preview before the users actually restore the files.
