Microsoft account data

Top  Previous  Next

EPV allows you to explore the Microsoft account user data downloaded by Elcomsoft Phone Breaker from the cloud. This data includes user contacts, notes, web browsing and search history, etc.

 

Newest Elcomsoft Phone Breaker version (6.60) downloads the Microsoft user data synced with the device and/or collected from the web browser.

 

Older Elcomsoft Phone Breaker versions download the Microsoft user data as Windows Phone backups. Windows Phone 8 (and 8.1) allows creating a kind of backup of the device in the cloud (no local backups are available), saving installed applications and their settings, text messages (SMS and MMS), photos/videos etc. (More information is available here: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/how-to/wp8/settings-and-personalization/back-up-my-stuff)

 

Unfortunately, there is no way to download the complete backup of the device. At this time, the following data can be extracted from Microsoft accounts:

Contacts (aggregated)

Notes (in Microsoft OneNote format)

Messages (SMS)

Calls

Web browsing history

Web search history

Location history

 

Please note that the Calls, Web browsing history, Web search history, and Location history data is available only in Microsoft account data downloaded with Elcomsoft Phone Breaker version 6.60. Microsoft account data downloaded by a lower version of Elcomsoft Phone Breaker will only contain the Contacts, Notes, and Messages types of data.

 

Extraction of Microsoft account data can be done using Elcomsoft Phone Breaker -- with valid Microsoft Live! credentials (login/email and password, it downloads the information listed above (as well as info on all Windows Phone devices connected to the account) and creates backup in its own format (actually, a plain ZIP archive), with the file name like:

 

backup_user@domain.com_20141209T114408.zip

 

Where user@domain.com is the ID of the account, followed by date/time stamp. That is the file you should open in EPV.

 

Note: Windows Live accounts from microsoft.com domain are NOT supported.
