iTunes Backup Recovery Tool
This tool recovers all media like pictures, videos and recorded audio from an (yet) unencrypted iTunes backup.
Requirements: Node.js Runtime ^4.0
cd /into/repositoryFolder npm install chmod +x ./itunes-backup-tool.js
Check a backup folder:
./itunes-backup-tool.js check /Users/xyz/yourBackupFolder
This will give you informations about the backup itself (if Info.plist exists) and will show you how much files of the supported types exist in the folder.
Copy all media files
./itunes-backup-tool.js copy /Users/xyz/yourBackupFolder /Users/xyz/destinationFolder
The new files are written to the destination directory with UUID filenames.
