“My little daughter played my iPhone5 and deleted some precious pictures unintentionally, luckily I have synced my iPhone with Mac last week, I can get the picture back by restoring from iTunes backup on Mac. But the problem is if I choose restore from iTunes backup, all the data currently in my iPhone5 would be overwritten by the old backup files.
