Are you frustrated about finding data back from an old broken phone? MobileTrans can help to extract data from old backups as long as you can recall you back up once using the Backup Phone feature on MobileTrans software.

First of all, launch the MobileTrans and open the "Restore" module on your computer.

Let’s see how to restore from phone devices' backups made by MobileTrans.

Step 1. Choose "MobileTrans backup file" and the backup file

Select the feature "MobileTrans backup file" on the software. MobileTrans will detect the backup files you've ever made by the software. Select the backup file you'd like to extract from if you made several backups.
