    Default Restore iPhone backups?
    I recently restored my iPhone back to version 1.1.1 so I could re-update it to 1.1.2. After the restore it asked if i wanted to create a new iPhone back on itunes or restore my old back up. I clicked create new, because I was doing the process on my old WinXP computer. I had been syncing my iPhone to new Mac and assumed that when I plugged it back into it after the update i would have the option again... but, alas, I was wrong... =[
    If anyone has any help for me to restore the old back up to my phone would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance,
    Matt


    P.S. I was doing the restore and update on my Windows computer because I knew what i was doing on there, still getting used to me MacBook. =]

    I'm sorry to say, but I think you're screwed. Now, I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure the iTunes backups are created using a unique ID key from your phone. When you told it to create new, it *overwrote* your old backup with your new one. The data is gone.
