uni project: creating a itunes backup decoder/convertor for windows
As part of my university course I am looking at creating a program which runs under windows which converts the .mdbackup files of an iphone itunes backup to its original file for instance it will run through all the files in the backup folder converting it to its intended file format for example 3d0d7e5fb2ce288813306e4d4636395e047a3d28.mddata > to > Sms.db. My programming skills are not the best in the world and I understand it will be more of a challenge to pull this off within windows. Im looking at making some sort of gui which will allow you to select the input backup folder and the output folder you will press go and it will convert them. Im looking at creating the program in C#, java or visual basic and I have a fare bit f time so going to start nice and early. I understand there is quite a few different mac/unix convertors out there but i want to make one for windows so i want to get my head around the converting process
Basically I have two questions
1. What programming language would you think would be the easiest to create this program
2. Can someone suggest ideas on how i can implement this so I now what I need to research because im struggling to find info on converting the backup files under windows.
Any help will be gratefully appreciated. Thank you for reading and i look forward to reading you reply.
