Users would like to extract iTunes backup file for their iDevices in many cases:

(1)I have an old itunes backup file for my i phone and I would like to extract the contacts list from it?

(2)How do you extract iPhone address book data from a backup? I recently got rid of my 8 gb iPhone and I was wondering if there was anyway to open/extract my address book from a backup file in Itunes so that I can add my contacts to my new phone.

(3)I need a free itunes backup extraction software for the mac?

As we know, iTunes is used to generate a backup file for every idevice that has been synced with it, easier for late restore when there is a such need. But you should know that those backup files are not allowed to access or preview. It means you can't directly take any data out of iTunes backup files. If you want to use it for your iDevice again, you'd better try iTunes backup extractor.
