UltData (iPhone Data Recovery)

Q1: What are the limitations of trial version?
There are no functional differences between the trial version and full version except that the trial version only allows scanning and previewing data, but not allows recovering data to computer.
After you purchase a license and register the trial version successfully, you will be able to recover the data without limitation.
Q2: What to do when UltData (iPhone Data Recovery) cannot detect my device?
-Unlock your iPhone/iPad/iPod firstly if you set a passcode.
-If you see “Trust This Computer” dialog appears on your iPhone, please click Trust option.
-iTunes should detect your iPhone without any warning message.
Q3: Why does UltData (iPhone Data Recovery) find no data in my device?
Please check whether you encrypted the iTunes backup so that the software failed to access data in your iPhone. Click here to check how to disable iTunes backup password.
Q4: Why does the software not find all the lost data by scanning iPhone directly?
Generally the program should find all lost data without time frame; whereas, if you continue to use the device after data loss, the new data will overwrite the deleted data gradually to free disk space. The longer time the data were deleted, the more possible they've been overwritten. It is recommended not to use the device when you lost important data. If you have backed up the data in iTunes or iCloud before, please switch to Recover Data from iTunes/iCloud Backup File mode to retrieve your data from backup.
Q5: How to fix "Failed! Please eject iOS device. Then connect it to your PC and scan it again!"
Try following steps:
1. Check whether you turned on the Find My iPhone on the device, if so, turn it off and try again.
2. Check and make sure there is enough available space on local hard disk.
3. Change a different USB cable to connect the device.
Q6: Can I still recover the data after iPhone restore/factory reset?
The restore or factory reset will erase all data in iPhone and make iPhone a new device. In this case, you cannot recover the lost data from iPhone directly. Good news that UltData (iPhone Data Recovery) can retrieve data from iTunes and iCloud backup file.
Q7: Why cannot I find my lost data from iTunes Backup file?
Two circumstances will cause this:
1. You've synchronized the iOS device with iTunes after the data loss, and thus the iTunes has updated the backup file by erasing the former data.
2. You've not backed up the data with iTunes before data lost.
If you deleted the data not long ago, please try Recover Data from iOS Devices.
Q8: How to import iPhone Backup File manually?
When you do not save the backup file in the specified path, you can click Import Backup File option to import the backup file manually.

The specified path to save the iTunes Backup File:
Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8: \Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\

Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\

MAC OS X computers: ~Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup

The "~" represents your Home folder. If you don't see Library in your Home folder, hold Option and click the Go menu.
Q9: What should I do when I forgot my iCloud password?
1. Go to the My Apple ID website and follow the instructions to reset your Apple ID password.

For more information, see the Apple Support article Apple ID: Changing your password.

2. After changing your iCloud password, make sure you update it on all your devices and in any email apps you use to get your iCloud email.

On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch: Go to Settings > iCloud, then tap your iCloud account.

On a Mac: choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click iCloud.

On a Windows computer: Open the iCloud Control Panel.

In your email apps: Check the help provided for the email apps you're using.

If you set up iCloud on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, make sure to set up a passcode lock on your device (Settings > General > Passcode Lock) for added security. Important Note: If you use the same Apple ID for iCloud as you do with other Apple services such as the Apple Online Store, iTunes Store, Mac App Store, or to purchase products in iPhoto or Aperture, changing your iCloud password also changes your password for these services. Make sure you sign in to those locations using your new password.

We recommend you to use Standard Repair, which will not cause data loss. If the problem persists, we recommend you to try 3-5 times to increase the success rate. Whereas, if your device is in worse circumstance unfortunately and cannot be fixed with Standard Repair, please switch to Deep Repair. All data will be wiped using Deep Repair, therefore, you’d better make a backup of your data before start deep repairing.

Normally, the program will make your device exit recovery mode successfully after waiting for around 20 seconds.

A Microsoft account is a new feature for Windows 8/8.1/10. It is a new name for Microsoft’s online account system, which was previously known as Windows Live ID, Microsoft Passport, and Microsoft Wallet, among other names. If you’ve ever registered for a Hotmail account or Windows Live ID, that’s a Microsoft account. Microsoft accounts are now also used for other Microsoft services, including Xbox Live, Windows Phone, and Zune. While most Microsoft accounts will probably be associated with an @hotmail.com, @outlook.com, or @live.com email address, you can create a Microsoft account linked to any email address. For example, you could have a Microsoft account linked to your @gmail.com email address.

A local account is the account you have run an older version before Windows 8. With that account, you can log in and change your settings, install software and keep your area separate from other users on the system.
