    Does anybody know where the default file for the back ups are stored on the PC? If I could check that it might be possible for me to do something. Right now I have no clue where iTunes stores the backup or the filename....

    Here is were it is located on a pc.

    Windows XP:
    C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup

    Windows 7 and Vista:
    C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup

    iTunes usually stores older backups along with the most current. You should be able to access all of them and be able to restore from previously saved backups. To do this open up iTunes and plug your phone in. Now right click the iPhone in iTunes and click ‘Restore from Backup’. You should have multiple backups to choose from in the pull down, and can restore back to any of those backups.

    Thanks I will try that. A friend who works for Motorola managed to get an older iPhone that my wife had and d/l much of the lost data from there. And that was the stuff that would be hard to get back, it was so old.

    So basically we all have a love/hate relationship with Apple. I'm on board.

    I've had a love/hate relationship with every computer/operating system I've ever worked with, from CP/M to OS X.

    Love/hate Apple and I love/hate Microsoft and I love/hate technology in general.

    Not a fan of iTunes though I have to say it doesn't take more than a minute to synch my iPhone and I love the interface with Outlook - stops me forgetting stuff. These days I listen to more music on vinyl then I do on iTunes.

    I just downloaded the Atomic Web Browser for my 3GS so we'll see how that works out. Didn't like Safari and couldn't get along with Opera Mini (though like Opera Desktop).

    I buy what I think will work for me and have no brand loyalty. I have never changed to a Mac because the PC has always done what I needed it to do. If I needed something a Mac offered that a PC didn't (or wasn't as good at) I would get a Mac.

    I don't see the point of an iPad but if it would send texts as my iPhone does I would get one because the font is so much larger so I could finally read incoming and outgoing texts without having to find my glasses

    Hello/my pc died last week! That was my 4th one in 7 years. I just purchased a mac. I was wondering where the tower was - there is none. It's all in the screen. What happens when the screen gives?? So far I love my big mac . Marek
