However, finding the backup file doesn't mean you've really got it. To protect personal privacy, iTunes backup is a kind of SQLITEDB file, which doesn't allow anyone to access or preview. You only can restore the whole content to your device, single SMS or contacts not permitted. If you want to access it, there is still a way: iOS Data Recovery can solve your problem.
