Angry iPhone 5 Won't Restore From Backup

I restored my iPhone5 this morning and when i wanted to restore the backup, my laptop tell me 'iTunes could not restore the iPhone "XXXX" because the backup could not be saved on the computer. Any ideas on what i can do?

OSX
iTunes 11.01
iOS6.1
Never Jailbroken

Windows, OSX? What version of iTunes? iOS version? Jailbroken?

i say try to backup again. but before that, you can check your backups manually.

open itunes, click the file button at the top left, select preferences, select devices from the tab.
from there you can see if you have any backups. If you do, i say keep tryin to restore from backup. if still doesnt work, contact apple.

It never completes the restore. I've tried it several times. Is there any other way to restore the iPhone? A workaround iTunes perhaps?
