    the backup itself isnt a complete disk image backup, it seems to be just a pointer to whatever files are on your iPod that have been synced. Anyway, the location seems to be:
    login name>library>application support>mobilesync>backup
    under Mac OS X
    and also it is:
    C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup
    under Windows XP.

    I believe they are compressed files containing data and settings from all your apps, as well as system-wide settings. The apps themselves aren't backed up, just their data.
