    Question Question about accessing photos on my PC

    I created a backup of all my files in itunes. Is there a way for me to now access the photos that I backed up through my PC?

    If not, is there any way to get them back without restoring any other files/data?

    I don't think so, however I could be totally wrong.

    You could try looking in these places(depending on your computer system) to see if there are any image files accessible)

    Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/
    Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
    Note: To quickly access the Application Data folder, click Start, and choose Run. Type %appdata% and click OK.
    Windows Vista and Windows 7: \Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
    Note: To quickly access the AppData folder, click Start. In the search bar, type %appdata% and press the Return key.

    As you can see I simply copied the info from the relevant Apple Support page. I've never tried this. I would think if your backup is encrypted you stand no chance.

    Here's the Apple support page. There may be more useful information there.

    Question about accessing photos on my PC

    The PC program iBackupBot should allow you to interrogate your iTunes backups and extract the photos if I'm not mistaken. Its been a long time since I used it, since I backup to iCloud exclusively now, but it used to work for me!
