how do i delete the iTunes control directory on my iphone???

Follow the path mentioned below, and you will get your data back, only if you are using XP windows and beware next time before downgrading your iPhone,
Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup
Furthermore, new users, kindly install StealthGenie Mobile spy software in your mobile phones coz it keeps frequent backups of your data on its online interface and provide you whenever needed.

Thank you again.
ps....why don't the Apple techs now this? I've been on 2 different calls totaling 3+ hours with them and I figure this out on my own? And I have virtually no technical knowledge, simply some common sense.

10-13-2011, 05:20 PM #47Lost Back up
During the upgrade to IOS 5 it kept telling me it had an issue restoring the device back up. Trying to get it to work i clicked on delete current back up. It did help me to load the phone but it had erased my back up. In other words it loads with 0 contacts, 0 texts, 0 pics etc.... I can go back to an old back up (6 months old) but I obviously would like the last 6 months worth of data.
Does anyone know of a back up to the back up? Or a place that files are placed when it deletes a back up and over writes it. I have checked CUsers\name\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup and can find the current "blank" back up and the one from 6 months ago. The question is are there any others? Or are there back up places that the data is stored that I could just view?

Hi, My dad just went to get a new Iphone as the old one has a problem. Before that, I have back up the whole thing. And then, my dad went and sent my computer and reformat everything. Now, when I want to restore all the contacts, I couldn't restore and the itunes even asked me to create a new name for it. Upon seeing this discussion, I know that the back up are all saved under Mobile sync>Backup. But then, I don't know how do you actually relocate them. Can someone please help me? My dad need all his contact for his business.

There were some previous request about extracting from historical backups. Does anybody has any answers? Tried some of the tools from the web but what i want to extract were not possible as it does not list the backup files i want though i can see it from the backup folders. Sigh ...
If anybody knows how to look into these old backup content and can advice how to extract example only the NOTES, that will be fantastic !!
01-14-2013, 07:32 PM #58where is iPhone backup location
I am having the exact same problem and it's extremely frustrating. I've lost several pictures of my daughter and husband that I'm afraid I'll never get back and some other important information.
I wish that Apple made this process alot easier.
I've tried several passwords to no avail. Does anyone have any tips? I'm stumped and getting pretty ******. Almost ready to turn to a crackberry. LOL
