For Mac OS X, choose iTunes from the Apple menu. Select the iTunes Backup menu item. Select the name of the backup from the backup list, and then press Backup. You may need to enter your Apple ID password. If you are unable to access your backup after the encryption is applied, the password is likely incorrect.
The developer of the iPhone Backup Extractor for Windows (http://www.iphonedevsdk.com/forum/iphone-app-developer/2536-iphone-backup-extractor-for-windows-mac.html) suggests using the program to extract iPhone backups from your Windows computer and then transfer them to a computer running Mac OS X, or using a Mac to transfer iPhone backups stored on your Mac to your Windows PC.
A Windows application called Backup iPhone iOS 7.1.1 8.1.1 (9.0.x) is available for Windows and should be able to access or transfer the encrypted data. Unencrypted backups, unfortunately, are not available. The developer says it works for 9.0.1, 9.0.2 and 9.0.3, and while it does work, it does not work for 9.1 or 10.0. The developer does not recommend using this application in newer iPhone models, and it is not intended for newer iOS versions. There are other Windows applications that do transfer and access the encrypted iPhone backups, but most of them are not free.
For most people, the number one priority when doing a backup of an iPhone is to back up the data. However, I would not recommend doing this, especially if you are storing this data on a cloud service.
If you are using a number of third-party applications and would like to back up your personal data in the same way you would with Backup software, it is possible to use the built-in file system on your computer to save your data to a file. This will need to be done with a Windows machine. The most common file system is the FAT32 file system, and this is a simple file system. It will only store files up to 4GB in size. To use this method, you need to use the Explorer program on Windows. To do this, launch the program and then click on the File menu and choose New. Now browse to the location on your hard drive where you want to store your data. You can also add a file name for the file if you want. When you are done, click on Open. To store this file in a different location, you need to click on the Save button. If you want to move this file, you can navigate to the new location using Explorer. You will need to import the file into the application that stores your data. If you are using a device like a USB drive or a flash drive, use these items instead of a folder on your hard drive. This method will be useful if you have applications that do not allow you to save to a folder and you want to save them to your hard drive.
A new feature in this version of the app enables to perform an auto backup. It is possible to set the new feature to backup all of your email data on a regular basis. In case an email is missing in backup file, the user can restore it by using iTunes. The backup file can be used to restore all email messages that are available in backup. Email Backup Wizard is available at a very reasonable price. You can get the app as a single package or as a part of a bundle offer. 827ec27edc
