Hi
I have a backup done using smart switch from my old Samsung S5 galaxy phone and I would like to know How to extract files or photos from smart switch backup to PC only.

The reason I am doing this is that I think the old phone may have had virus and I don't want to restore all backup to my new phone. I want to start fresh. But, there are some important photos (generated / edited using third party apps) which i need to copy across to my PC.

Is the backup made with Smart Switch for PC? If so, you can use Windows Explorer to open the backup folder of Smart Switch, and find the photos. On my laptop, the location is C: > Users > Username > Documents > samsung > SmartSwitch > backup. But not sure whether you can find photos edited with third-party apps.
