How does the iPhone backup work in itunes?
Can someone please tell me how the backup is supposed to work in iTunes? Is this an automatic thing when I sync my phone with iTunes, or do I have to manually kick off a backup?
The reason I asked is that my iPhone suddenly gave me the dreaded "itunes can not read the contents of the iPhone..." message.
So, I clicked restore, and it downloaded the iPhone software again, and restored my iPhone back to factory settings.
As I understand, it's supposed to then give me the opportunity to restore my content, such as text messages, settings, etc, but it never gave me that option.
I am not able to find anything in iTunes to kick off a restore. Is there anyway to get my stuff back, or am I hosed?

Under 1.1.4, all settings are stored locally each time. Under 2.0, everything is backed up daily, but it takes 10X longer than it did under 1.1.4.

Doesn't make sense to me, I thought they automatically backed it up whenever you sync. LOL
