    TLDR: My main problem is that when restoring from my backup, my photos would not restore with everything else. Is there a fix?

    I have an iPhone X backup with photos that I don’t have currently because I accidentally deleted them on my current iPhone X. I used a third party backup extractor to verify those photos and videos are still there. I don’t have iCloud Photos enabled so I can’t get them back from there.

    I tried restoring my iPad using the iPhone X backup via iTunes. All my apps, notes, etc are there but not my photos. I still have enough storage space on my iPad.
    Under Photos in iTunes, I only have the option to import from my Desktop.

    I tried looking online but most deal with iCloud backups and buying the third party programs to get the photos/videos back.


    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I’m sorry, could you elaborate a little more?

    So my goal is to recover my old photos from my old iPhone X backup by restoring my iPad Pro with that said backup. The backup works without errors or issues. All my settings, notes, music, Safari/Chrome tabs are there. The only thing missing are my photos. The camera roll says 0. I tried restoring twice but I get the same results. I know for a fact that the photos are still there. I used a Backup Extractor and I can still see the photos and videos. I rather not spend $20-$50 to buy the full program to recover said photos from the program.

    I did see a suggestion of deleting folders from within the backup. Does anyone know how to find out if the folder is related to an app. Since all the folders are labeled as “dhwkgnwj28fbs”, it would be difficult to distinguish which is which
