So iCloud has backed up my application and data, great. How do I restore that specific apps data, only?

    Welcome to the Apple community.


    Unfortunately, you cannot selectively restore data from a backup, it's either all or nothing.

    Hi Winston,


    When Apple labels this all or nothing function "Reset". I agree 100%. But, without the most elementary functions, like the ability to select files and folders to be restored,  iCloud is a primitive synchronization service, not a back up service.


    I couldn't find any third party back up application using iCloud storage. Is it a legal issue with the license?
