How to Manage Backups in FoneTool?
When you use FoneTool to back up your iOS data, some backup tasks and backup files will be generated. You can perform some operational management on ongoing or completed backups in FoneTool. This chapter will introduct you some methods of managing your backups.
You can terminate the ongoing backup task by clicking "Cancel"
All the already done backup will be listed in the " Backup History". Click the "Browse" button on the task to view the detail backed up data.
When a backup is completed, we can quickly locate the storage location of the backup files by clicking the "Locate Backup" button.
Since our backups are categorized according to the backup version, when you need to delete a certain backup, we provide you with two deletion methods:
Method 1. Delete one backup version
Click "Manage Version" to enter the version management screen.
Choose a backup version and click "Delete". It should be noted that if the data of this backup version is associated with the data of other backup versions, only the task of this backup version will be deleted, the data will not be deleted.
Method 2. Delete all backup versions
Click the "Delete" button on the task to delete all backup versions of the device. This function will only remove all backup versions without deleting corresponding files. In this case, you can import files into the program when necessary.
When you want to import the backup task of the current device to other devices, or migrate the backup of the current device to a new computer, you can use the "Import Backup Files" feature.
Click the three-lines on the upper right side of the main window, select "Import Backup Files", then browse and select the backup repository file "mblibrary.db", then the task and corresponding backup versions will be imported into FoneTool. After that, you can continue to do backup based on the task.
Tip: FoneTool also supports importing iTunes backups. The backup file created by iTunes is stored in a folder named by the device UDID. You need to select the Manifest.db file in the folder to import.
