Hi John,


Yes the back up that I made under ITunes


 

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX I'm guessing you run Windows, what version?

windows 7


 

Thanks again.

The backup is usually stored in a sub-directory of the following path:

C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup

<UserName> would be whatever name is XXXXX XXXXX current user account under Windows 7.

If you have system folders and files hidden you would need to un-hide them first.
Here is a tutorial on the internet for how to un-hide those objects:
