    What directory are you in (give the full path)? Also XP? Vista? 7?

    XP

    well thats the problem. i read that its in
    C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup
    but i go to my user in documents and settings but there is no application data.

    i have done a folder search for mobilesync and backup and it didn't come up on either.
    the farthest full path i get is.
    C:\Documents and Settings\*******

    Hmmm…. you have the right directory. Are there different users or are you logged in as admin (I doubt that’s the problem, since you see it in iTunes).

    Back it up again. IDK what to tell you, since it should be there. You could also reinstall iTunes, since maybe something got corrupted.
