    I updated my 1st gen 8GB iPhone last night from firmware 1.1.4 to 2.1
    After the upgrade, I lost the last 3 months worth of added contacts, safari and Maps bookmarks, txt messages, calendar events, and notes. For some reason, the backup of all my current settings failed and it reverted to one that was 3 months old.

    I post this first as a warning to others to manually back up everything prior to upgrading (including saving all settings in other formats like contacts in an exported file). Second, I was wondering if anyone knows if all this data is lost forever, or if there is a hidden backup folder somewhere where I can restore the settings I had yesterday?
