What is it

Small tool that gathers data from iphone backups.

How to

Required programs

Python 3:


Download the newest release from the main GitHub repository
Via Git
git clone
Download the .zip file from GitHub repository

Basic usage:

Basic command: backup_paths [backup_paths ...]

Help: -h

Optional arguments:

TXT output file: --txt_output_file --txt_output_file --txt_output_path [txt_output_path]

XML output file: --xml_output_file --xml_output_file --xml_output_path [xml_output_path]

Developer documentation

The development documentation can be built via Sphinx
Install Sphinx via system repository or pip

Open a terminal and change directory to the docs directory cd {Project_location}\docs

Generate rst source files using sphinx-apidoc
sphinx-apidoc -o source ../

Generate html documentation using make
make html

The built development documentation will be in the new docs/build/html directory, open the index.html file in a web browser to view the documentation.

Future plans

Some of the plans for this project in the near future are:

  • Allow for auto-backup and analysis of IPhones
  • Allow for database containing all files and file metadata
You can’t perform that action at this time.
