Restore New iPad mini from Backup with Slective Contents


Once you got a new iPad in hand to replace the current iOS device, the fastest way to fill it with your often used files would be restored from the backup of the iPad or iPhone you were using before. As we know, regular backup of an iOS device will be generated once you sync it via iTunes. And this iTunes-auto-generated backup file can be restored completely and directly to a new iOS device for continuous use as long as you want.

But, please remember in mind that iTunes doesn't support you to extract files selectively from the unreadable .sqlitedb backup file. So, once you want to restore your new iPad from backup with some specific files rather than those useless ones from, then you may need a third party program for help. iPad/iPod/iPhone Data Recovery, which supports to extract kinds of files from iTunes backup, is undoubtedly a good choice for you to restore new iPad from backup with wanted files selectively. (For Mac user, the iPad/iPod/iPhone Data Recovery for Mac would be more helpful.)

Note: When you don't have iTunes backup, the iTunes Data Recovery Windows version also allows you to directly scan and recover data from iOS device directly with proper version of software.
