    I've backed up my phone to computer for years back to the first iphone. I do it once a month or so.

    Today I get this error:

    "iTunes could not backup this iPhone because an error occured."

    However, it syncs fine.

    Latest version of iTunes, OSX and iOS software, not jailbroken.

    Hate when i can't fix a tech problem lol. Any help? I'm very tech savvy, so feel free.

    I've already deleted old backups and cleared the lockdown folder, checked for updates, etc.

    Have you tried a Reset and/or Restore from backup on the iPhone?

    I presume your Mac has enough free space, but how big is your iPhone's Camera Roll? Since that is part of your backup, a very large Camera Roll may interfere with the backup process (just a guess).
