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 - Reports in details.
report formats are human-readable and can be opened using supported web
browsers, PDF viewers and Microsoft Office applications.
HTML report format can be opened using your web browser (we recommend
using Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer 11). This format does not include a full backup of phone
data - to create a full backup please use the MOBILedit Backup export
format as well.
This option will automatically generate two HTML files into the export folder:
- 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
- HTML report split into multiple HTML files based on sections
PDF report format can be opened using your PDF viewer or editor (we recommend using Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader).
can choose from two types of PDF reports - Single File or Multiple
Files. Your selection will be automatically generated into the export
- Single file
- contains the full PDF report file with all extracted content
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
- 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:
- 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
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 & backups
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 live connected again.
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 mobiledit_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.
MOBILedit Export is an XML file used to export extracted and analyzed data into other applications.
You can set Hash protection as well.
This export file can be exported into and opened by the Cellebrite Mobile Forensics line of products.
