You must hold the opinion that your iPhone 5(including iPhone 5s, 5c, 5) files are safe since you have iTunes backup, but when you do need to restore iPhone 5 from iTunes backup you suddenly find that iTunes just fails to restore iPhone contacts, photos, notes, messages, etc.
Take a breath. I will offer you two methods that enable you to restore iPhone 5 from iTunes backup as well as call history, Safari Bookmark and other iPhone contents.
iTunes Data Recovery is the tool that could help us restore iPhone 5 from iTunes backup. And you actually do not need iTunes when you do the restore, what you need is the iPhone 5 backup files that stored in your computer hard drive C, which is created once you backup iPhone 5 with iTunes or synched your iPhone with iTunes. If you do not synched ore backed up and have no backup files, go directly to method 2.
