    I downloaded the 9.3 beta to try out
    Had a load of problems with Bluetooth so downgraded.

    My iTunes back up is on the pc I can see it under back up section

    Now I'm on 9.2.1 it's saying this phone had never been backed up?

    Any advice I have a lot of really important notes

    Think I'll leave the betas alone for now lol

    IF you made a backup while you had 9.3 installed, your backup will be newer than your current software. You would delete your backup created with 9.3 and make a new one with 9.2.1

    Thanks for the reply
    Think I'm screwed as the back up was made with 9.3
    Would the beta back up work when Apple release 9.3 ??

    Yes it will work when 9.3 b2 or later releases. Also you can make a copy of that folder to save it. Then edit the info.plist file and change the version string value. This process worked back in iOS 8 days but not 100% sure it will work with iOS9. Probably worth a try if you have lost your stuff anyway. Again make a copy 1st just so you have it for future if needed.
