Why would it matter? It's not a good idea to delete your backup unless you are doing something specific...

More detail is requested.

Somewhere in program files.

I would guess it is somewhere in C:/~blah blah blah~/program-files/itunes

Sorry, I don't have iTunes installed on Parallels (Mac).

Just look around a little.

On Vista, it's in a folder called C:\blahblahblah\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\{long string of letters&numbers}

Hopefully, it's not much different on XP. So search your C drive for folders named "Backup," then see if any of them have higher-level directories similar to what I listed above.

Expand the section

iTunes places the backup files in the following places:

On a Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/

On Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\

On Windows Vista: \Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync
