    Where are the backup iPhone files located in Windows and Mac? Is it possible to transfer the backup file(s) from Windows to Mac, vice versa?

    (for Mac) They're in: "~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup"

    Not sure about moving them to Windows iTunes, though.

    Check that you're in your user Library, rather than in "/Macintosh HD/Library"

    ('~' (tilde) means user)

    (file location for windows [vista]: c:\users\USERNAME\appdata\roaming\applecomputer\mobilesync\backup\

    IF YOU CAN NOT FIND \APPDATA YOU MUST DISABLE HIDDEN FOLDERS!

    you can do this through CONTROL PANEL -> FOLDER OPTIONS -> VIEW

    This caused too many frustrations for me!
