How do I restore one file from my iPad backup?

Views: 359 Replies: 1
I backed up my iPad and then accidentally overwrote an Excel file on my iPad. How do I get the original Excel file out of my backup? I've used restore software to see that the file I want is in my backup but I don't want to pay $70 to restore one file. How can I extract a file from by iPad backup without restoring my entire iPad?

You can only restore the whole backup, you can't just extract one file from it.

You could take a copy of your existing backup folder, take a new backup, take a copy of that new backup, copy the old backup back, restore to that old backup, take a copy of the excel file (e.g. copy it to your computer), and then copy the new backup back and restore to it and copy the excel file back onto your iPad.
