Is there a way to retrieve voice memo files from iCloud without actually restoring the whole backup? I had an iOS system issue that apparently corrupted some files on my iPhone. I guess there are some voice memo files that exist in the last backup. However, I cannot afford to restore the whole backup, as part of files seem fine now. Hope there's a solution. Thanks.

iPhone almost has all features of other digital products like voice recording, which lets us not need to carry around a physical recorder with us like before.
