You are here because you are curious about what’s happening to your device right now. So what’s the magic behind the Custom restore function in CopyTrans Shelbee? We are happy to share all our secrets with you.
The whole Custom restore process consists of four parts:
Loading the backup to restore
You’ve just chosen a backup from which your data will be restored. Right now, we are opening the archive, reading the data inside of the backup, and structuring it.
Please note that no changes are being made to your device yet, since we are just loading the backup.
As soon as your backup is loaded, you will be able to select the contents you wish to restore.
Selecting the backup data to restore
CopyTrans Shelbee takes the data you’ve selected (for example, call history or contacts) from the backup you’ve chosen in the previous step.
If you want Wi-Fi passwords, app logins & passwords to transfer over to the new device, both the backup and the destination device should be encrypted. More info
Backing up the destination device
Just before the actual restore we ask you to choose a destination for the “safety backup”. You will have a backup of your device in case something goes wrong during custom restore. You can delete this backup after you make sure everything went well.
Restoring selected data to the destination device
Now the program is restoring the data you selected in step 2 to your device. It will replace the existing data on your device, whereas the rest of your data will remain unchanged. For example, you’ve chosen contacts. The contacts you have on your device will be overwritten, but everything else like messages, calendars, etc. will stay untouched.
If the restore fails for some unknown reason, see the troubleshooting steps for when the backup is corrupt.
The restore is now completed! Please note that if any of the apps failed to download, you can always download them manually from the App Store on your iPhone. More info.
You may carry out the custom restore procedure as many times as you wish. If, while restoring your data, you realize that you haven’t selected your photos or notes, don’t worry! When the current restore is complete, run CopyTrans Shelbee once again and choose what you want to restore this time.
You can also set up CopyTrans Shelbee notifications in order not to forget to back up your data. It’s important to back up your iOS device on a regular basis to prevent any complications.
