    Herro MR, I'm buying a new laptop soon and I was wondering where the iPhone backups are located so I can transfer them to my new laptop.


    Oh, and I'm also not using a Mac, I'm using Windows 7

    While this information is exact for Vista, I believe the folder structure for Windows 7 is similar.

    C:\username\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup where username is the name you have given your login for the computer.

    That will contain a number of other folders. Each containing a backup.

    Hope that helps.

    I had the same question a while ago. :)

    Also, the AppData folder may be hidden so you may (like I did) have to create a shortcut on your desktop and make the location "%AppData%", without the quotation marks of course.
