"Easy iPhone backup and restore without iTunes"
CopyTrans Shelbee is a Windows package to provide a backup option for iPhone owners who also own a Windows PC as their primary desktop/laptop computer.
The package can handle many aspects of data stored on multiple types of iOS device. Installed apps, contacts, messages sent and received, calendars, camera roll, app files and documents, and preferences can be saved.
Instead of using Apple's iTunes software, this software can help to backup without issues. There is no need, like there can be, to erase and sync to bring the software up to date. There are frequent problems for iTunes users where the iTunes backup gets messed up and has to be rectified with separate software to fix the problem. CopyTrans Shelbee removes this problem by ensuring that the iPhone can be accessed for backup purposes without the need to use iTunes.
Not only iPhones, but also iPads and iPod Touch devices can be accessed with the software and backed up.
Choose where backups are to be sent to. Backups can be stored in any folders on a hard drive, but also to an external hard drive or USB flash drive for storage off-site.
The installation process runs okay. There is a little strange language selection window that pops up, but after that the language is selected, the program installs without difficulty.
The software requires Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows XP or Windows Vista.
The interface is simple to use. There are two tabbed options for Backup and Restore, and Toolbox. The Backup and Restore is obvious, but the Toolbox includes a feature that helps users automatically move the iOS backups made by iTunes from the default iTunes folder to another location on their PC. This frees up much needed space on the PC main disk drive. Go to this page for a detailed explanation.
There is also a Settings icon in the top right corner of the app with Settings, Notifications, and a few other more minor options.
- Perform easy backups of iOS iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices
- Save the backups to a flexible location like a USB flash drive or hard drive
- Toolbox with access to the iTunes backup library
- All in one solution when owning multiple iOS devices
- Not a Con per se, but in order for Shelbee to work, you do need to have iTunes installed, or the CopyTrans Drivers Installer.
CopyTrans Shelbee is a useful iOS backup utility that can create backups to various locations for an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch devices.
Requirements: iOS drivers
