            Output - reports, exports and backups

            Create multiple formats of reports and exports after extracting data from a phone, each customizable to your specific needs. To continue you must select at least one format. More information about the structure of each file format can be found in the following section- Report in details.



            Reports

            All report formats are human-readable and can be opened using supported web browsers, PDF viewers and Microsoft Office applications.

            HTML Report

            An HTML report format can be opened using your web browser (we recommend using Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer 11). These formats do not include a full backup of phone data, to create a full backup please use the Compelson Backup export format as well.

            This option will automatically generate two HTML files into the export folder:

            1. Report_long.html
              - the full HTML report file with all content
              - please note that this file can be large (100MB and more), therefore web browsers may have problems opening or viewing the file if such a large amount of data was extracted from the phone - if you experience problems while opening the HTML file, use the Report_index.html file instead





            2. Report_index.html
              - HTML report split into multiple HTML files based on sections






            PDF Report

            PDF report format can be opened using your PDF viewer or editor (we recommend using Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader).



            You can choose from two types of PDF reports- Single File or Multiple Files, your selection will be automatically generated into the export folder:

            1. Single file
              - contains the full PDF report file with all extracted content
              - please note that this file can be large (1GB and more), if you experience problems while generating or opening the PDF file due to the large amount of data, use the Multiple files option instead





            2. Multiple files
              - PDF report is split into multiple PDF files based on sections


             

            MS Excel report

            MS Excel report can be opened using Microsoft Excel application (we recommend using Microsoft Excel 2010 or newer).

            You can choose from two types of MS Excel reports, your selection will be automatically generated into the export folder:

            1. XML Format

              - multiple XML files will be generated, one for common data such as contacts, messages, events etc., and one for each application
              - these files can be further processed using Microsoft Excel or viewed in any supported web browser




            2. Workbook

              - multiple XLSX files will be generated, one for common data such as contacts, messages, events etc. (each in a separated workbook sheet), and one for each application
              - these files can be further processed using Microsoft Excel 2007 or newer



             

            Exports

            All export formats are machine-readable and can be used to process extracted data in other applications, or to make a full backup of any device which can be later opened and analyzed without having the device connected.

            MOBILedit Backup



            MOBILedit Backup XML contains a full phone data backup which can be opened, browsed and analyzed again, as well as archived for further use. The complete filesystem structure is put into the compelson_backup.xml file and all phone data is copied into backup_files subfolder.


            You can set Hash protection, packing and password protection for Backup as well.

            MOBLedit Export



            MOBILedit Export is an XML file used to export extracted and analyzed data into other applications.

            You can set Hash protection as well.

            Cellebrite UFDR

            This export file can be exported into and opened by the Cellebrite Mobile Forensics line of products.
