phoneMiner 2.4

Recover lost photos, contacts, e-mails, messages from your phone's backup files
2.4.7 (See all)

phoneMiner enables you to access the backup files of your iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry or Sony Ericsson phone on your Windows computer. This makes it possible to easily view, extract, export and manage the data stored by these files. Thanks to this tool you will be able to view and backup data such as the address book with all your contacts and contact details, SMS messages, emails, calendars, the call log, and more. You will also be able to easily transfer this kind of data from your phone to the computer or to other locations for backup or synchronization purposes.

I like about this tool the fact that it supports a quite large variety of phone models and file formats, including a lot of iPhone and iPad models, BlackBerry .BBB and .IPD backup files and even Sony Ericsson .DBK files. I also like its neat and intuitive interface that presents the retrieved data in a clear way, making it easy to choose what you want to export and to what file format. The supported exporting file formats are also a praiseworthy aspect, as this tool supports a lot of file types, including Excel specific ones such as XLS, XLSX or CSV, PDF documents, vCard VCF files, and many other more. This makes importing the retrieved data to other applications a simple matter.

In an end note, phoneMiner is a nice tool that works as intended and does a great job at backing up data from your phone and exporting it to various locations and file formats.
