Choosing iPhone data recovery software to help us might be more secure. iPhone Data Recovery program is the one I'm in favor of. It supports iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S,, iPhone 4 and versions below. There are different versions of this program for different iPhone models. You could download the iPhone 4S version to have a try.

From there on, iTunes only backup and overwrite the files which are modified on the device. You can check this by looking at different timestamps for the files in the backup. So, restore iPhone 4s backup files and get back all data.
To use this mode of the iPhone 4S data recovery tool we need to make sure the backup is on our PC. Next we could finish the process by:
