    Hopefully, a quick question: I have hundreds of voice recordings in my iPhone QuickVoice app and a few of them for some reason will not transfer to my Mac with QuickVoice's Sync utility. Tried twice and all but the same few won't come through, yet they play fine on my iPhone. I must get them to my Mac though and they are more than a few minutes long each so the app says they're too big to e-mail.

    Which leaves me with I'm guessing the only other option is to access the iPhone's system files, wherever the QuickVoice app stores the recordings, while it's connected to my Mac, pick out the few that didn't transfer over, and copy them to my Mac.

    Any idea how to go about doing this WITHOUT a jailbroken iPhone?

    Thanks in advance! Really appreciate it. :)

    Without jailbreaking, I think you're out of luck.
    PhoneView (as posted above) and similar applications will only allow full disk access (which you would require) on jailbroken devices.

    Yeah, u wont be able to browse thru the files thats on your phone unless your jailbroken..

    Luckily all your system files, pictures, and app data is backed up everytime you sync your phone... Im on a mac. Theirs an app called iphone backup extractor.. This extracts all the files in the backup. really easy to navigate thru.. i recommend u get the files that way...

    if your unable to find the app. u can send me a private message and i will do it for u.

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    I recommend that free app all the time, but most never bother trying it. Maybe your success will prompt other users.

    Iphone Backup extractor?

    Is this app still available? I couldn't find it when I searched in the app store. I coincidentally am trying to pass over my QuickVoice files to my mac also! Thank you very much!
