I've got a wallpaper selected on my phone, and also have it as my WhatsApp wallpaper. It's long since been deleted / lost, but yet when I get a new phone, the restrore of my backup always re-adds it.

Is there anyway of actually recovering the file, so that I have a backup, in case I want to setup the phone as new, rather than restore from backup?

Then there’s no way. The image of your device gets backed up as a special type of compressed file.
I can backup to my MacBook Pro if it'll allow me to extract a file.

Tell me more, where will the file be stored?
