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?
