    Hey guys, hopefully I'm posting in the right section. Didn't know where else to post this question.

    So I was looking through my iPhone backups in iTunes under preferences, and I accidentally deleted one of the backups which I wanted to keep. I wanted to know if there was ANY way to recover this deleted backup file.. I've tried to search online, but nothing I saw gave any definitive answers.

    I do have my current phone backed up with iCloud, but these backups included a lot of old messages and what not which I would very much like to keep.

    If anyone can help me out here or any advice would be great. Sorry again if this is the wrong section to post this. Thanks.

    I am totally new here after years on Android. So I don't know if you could call support and see if they are available somewhere on their servers. Like maybe they are kept for 30 days.

    iTunes backups are stored locally on the computer.

    Oops, thought OP was talking about phone backups to iCloud.

    I don't even know how to back up just iTunes--:eek:

    You would have to get it from your computer backups.....if you have a backup of your computer. :(

    Time Machine? Should be in ~(home folder)/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/

    lol

    I already do that. Thought you talking about just an iTunes music backup. Lots to learn. #
