Is it possible to partially restore an iTunes backup of iPhone? Just contacts and messages would be ideal. I know within the backup folder of each iPhone, the file 31bb7ba8914766d4ba40d6dfb6113c8b614be442.mddata corresponds to contacts, and 3d0d7e5fb2ce288813306e4d4636395e047a3d28.mddata is for messages. So could I just delete all the other files and then click restore from backup in iTunes? Many thanks EDIT: Ok I tried it and iTunes won't restore from the backup (unknown error -32). So I have all the unwanted backup files in the recycle bin and only the two above mentioned files in the backup folder. Any suggestions?
