Tried the latest iOS 7 on your iPod touch and erased all data on it? You’re not alone. That’s what all people who upgraded their iPod touch devices to iOS 7 need to face. If you’ve backed up all the data on your iPod touch with iTunes, you only need to restore it with one click. Then all the backup file will be on your iPod touch again. That’s a pretty simple work for every iPod touch user. The only thing you need to pay attention is that don’t sync your iPod touch after you upgrade the system, or the backup file will be updated. You’ll lose your data consequently.
Besides restoring data from iTunes backup, some people may want to only restore a part of the data, like the items they want. Well, iTunes doesn’t allow you to do this. You can only do “All” or “Nothing” with it. In this case, you need to figure out another way, such as using a third-party tool that can help you extract iTunes backup.
