    So my iPhone was acting up, so I decided to factory restore it and then planed to use my back-up file from a few days ago.

    So here's the best part. I wipe and restore my phone and when I try to use my back-up, it says it's corrupt or some lame thing like that and won't work.

    Luckily, I have just switched my iTunes library from my old desktop PC to my new MBP about 3 weeks ago. I still have my desktop with my iTunes on their as well and I was wondering if I could find the file from an older back-up and restore from that.

    If I can do that, can anyone tell me where the file would normally be at and what it may be called or it's extension.

    I would appreciate it :)

    On Windows XP:
    C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup

    On Windows Vista:
    C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\AppleComputer\MobileSync\Backup

    On Mac:
    /Users/USERNAME/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup

    Essentially, just look for MobileSync.
