This week's update is brought to you from a combination of London winter and Californian sun. ☀️ What's new in today's release?
- Feature Holy smokes! iPhone Backup Extractor will now automatically spot new backups as they're created, and remove backups from its list as they're removed. Feedback on this feature is especially appreciated.
- Feature We've added an
Open default backup foldermenu item under the "Utilities" menu. If you can't find your iTunes backup folder, the easiest way is to download iPhone Backup Extractor and let it untangle the different places your backup could be. It's in the free edition, of course.
- Improvement iOS filesystems are case-sensitive. Some Windows and macOS filesystems aren't. That means it can be impossible to represent the contents of an iOS backup as-is where there are case-sensitivity collisions. Some apps store their data in this way, and that has meant that a pure solution -- writing files according to their correct name when exporting -- means that some of the data overwrote other parts. We now proactively detect and handle this. Still, if you want 1:1 veracity in your exports, export to a case-sensitive filesystem or DMG mount.
- Fix We correctly show WhatsApp contact names in preview mode. They'd disappeared in prior releases, although they've been correct in exports. Sorry.
