    Hi, I want to install iOS 5 GM, however I was forced to upgrade to beta 7 OTA, as a result I lost my pictures. My pictures are on a backup when I had beta 6 however that backup is over a month old. Is there a way to get my pictures back while still retaining my data since my last sync, such as text messages? I'm thinking about using iCloud to create a backup since it is finally allowing me to sign in. Then install iOS 5 GM from the backup with my pictures and then logging into iCloud and restore from that backup. My question is, when I perform a restore is it an incremental restore?

    Thanks
    :apple:

    Does this program only extract the contents of the backup?
