Thereafter all recoverable items are listed in a three-pane structured list from which you can select and preview any item to be assured of its recovery.
If you select iTunes / iCloud backup, the software prompts you to enter your Apple ID credentials and then select the backup that you wish to recover. Thereafter you have the option to ‘Delete Downloaded Backup’ or ‘Scan Download’. If you select the option to scan, the backup is thoroughly scanned for recoverable items and they are listed in a similar three-pane structured list from which you can select and preview any item to be assured of its recovery.
