USING GIHOSOFT iPHONE DATA RECOVERY
My first remark is you should always have/do a valid Backup of your device with iTunes. Always better be safe then sorry. Just nodding your head agreeing to this is not enough, DO IT ! This also applies to any computer-data you’ve got. BackUp your Mac, your photo’s and documents. Just about anything you can’t do without in times of trouble. I get asked by friends many times ” can you fix my computer problem”, and YES anything can be fixed but sometimes not without loss of data. So save your stuff as memory sticks or external harddrives are cheap nowadays.
In this case we lack a backup from iTunes, as the application warns about the missing backup ! No worries, you may stil recover your lost files straight from your iPhone. Gihosoft iPhone Data Recovery will start scanning your device which can prove time consuming when your found backup on iTunes is encrypted which is recommended. My iPhone took 1 hour to finalise scanning,

SCANNING YOUR IPHONE
The one thing that worries me is the absence of choice in doing a recovery from your iTunes Backup or skip this and go to your iPhone directly and scan for your missing data. Now to software always takes you to your iTunes backup wether is is Old or New. An older backup might not have your desired data available, and without skipping ( well I can’t undo the selection mark ! ) take you to your iPhone straight away. I may be wrong but will ask for tech. info from Gihosoft.
