Default Sprite Explorer - Free Utility for Sprite Backup Customers to Explore Backup Files

http://www.spritesoftware.com/sprite-explorer

"Sprite Explorer provides you with the flexibility of viewing, browsing and extracting files and folders from your Sprite Backup or Sprite Clone images from your PC. Recovering individual files or folders has never been easier or more intuitive. What’s more, Sprite Explorer is free! ... Have you ever had a situation where you have accidentally deleted a file, or over-written a key document. You know that you have a copy of the document in your last backup, but the only way to access that document would be to restore your image to your device, erasing anything that you have updated! Now with Sprite Explorer, you can explore your images, and extract individual files and folders. Recovery has got even easier."

Kudos to the folks over at SpriteSoftware for releasing this handy utility. I have faced the situation where the file I need is on one of the backup files; but to get to it I had to take a fresh backup, restore the old backup, recover the file and then restore the latest backup. Not anymore, thanks to this tool. What amazes me is that this tool is FREE for the Sprite customers. 8)

Will have to give this a try to see if it reads backups on the mobile device. Would be great if this utility would run on the mobile. I don't backup to my PC, so I'm not sure how much this would help me when I need a file.

It doesnt matter where you save your images, and you just need to copy the backup file to your PC no matter how, then open it with your Sprite Explorer, then you will see all your files backed up from your device.

This is totally awesome. I just tried it with a saved Sprite image file and it works great. Decompressed the file instantly and I was able to see all of my individual files. Great program.

That's good news. I guess I got spoiled by the PPC version where I could restore individual files right from the PPC device using Sprite. No external PC program needed.
