    Hi all.

    This is a little confusing but I'll cut the story short.

    Decided to put iOS 8 on my iPhone, had issues so I did a full restore and now iOS 7 is back on it.

    However, I've had to restore as new because I couldn't find the backup from last night, 1836.

    When I go to the settings on my phone, it says last backup: 1836 but when I look on iTunes the 1836 backup isn't there.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    Anybody?

    Is no-one replying because it's that obvious or no-one actually knows?

    You can't restore an iOS 8 backup to an iOS 7 device. Was the latest backup made on iOS 8 or 7?

    Did you backup to iTunes or iCloud? To restore from iCloud backup, restore to iOS7 again and then setup the phone on the phone instead of through iTunes.

    ^This. If you backed up to iCloud and allowed iOS 8 to run an auto icloud backup, you cannot recover your backup in iOS7. Hopefully you have a copy of your backup in iTunes from iOS 7?

    About to install ios8 now....when it installs, I should opt to do the iCloud back up when it turns on right, as I would usually, or do I restore with my iTunes hard copy back up?

    The latest backup was from iOS 8.

    Anyway, I've just started all over, now on 7.1.1. Going to wait until beta 3 at least before I do that again.

    Thanks.

    Make sure you get a backup of 7.1.1 and keep it in iTunes.

    Yep, it's backed up to iCloud and iTunes now. Thanks.
