    After doing a backup on either my ipod or ipad & then going to try to do a restore nothing shows up under "Restore from Backup" Where it says "Chose a backup to restore" on the drop down list the only backup showing is one I did in Dec of 2009. It goes through the motions of a backup - Step 1, Backing up, then finishes but no backup shows up. Just did backup's on both my ipod & ipad & neither backup is there, just says "last synced today 10:15pm"

    The automatic backup you've done is not dated it will just show then name of your device (e.g. Dave's Iphone). I think you are looking at the latest backup just not realising it, if you select the december one it will say the date in december next to last synced, go back to the first one and it will change back to last synced today. That one is your latest backup.

    Automatic backup always overwrites the same file, manual backups create a dated file that isn't then overwritten at subsequent backups.
