I had some jailbreaking and ios4 issues tonight and installed SBSettings and it removed all of my apps from the springboard even though it said they were still on my phone. I backed up my phone and then restored and set the phone up as new. However, all of my contacts are missing.

I know they're saved on my computer. How do I manually get itunes to point to the folder that my backups are in. Right clicking only gives me the most recent backups after the restore, but I know I have older ones on my computer.

Please help!!! All my contacts are gone and I don't know what to do. Thanks.

Thanks! Anyone know how to do it on a mac? The files overwrote themselves when I upgraded on a pc, but I still have the original files on my mac.

Just put the backup on a flash drive to use on the pc ;)

I think on a Mac you might be able to with one of the control buttons(command?)+click restore, but i'm not sure which one
