    Help anyone ! Did an iPhone backup to iTunes on my Computer before the ios 8..8.02 updates. Got so boloxed by issues with 8 that I can't remember the backup password. Any way around it ? Ios 8 managed to reduce 3,800 songs on my iPhone 5 to 212 and has labeled 30 GB as 'other', which my iPhone doesn't recognize as Music. Now I can't restore or re-sync and add the music back from iTunes...or install new for that matter.

    If you can't remember it, you mostly out of luck. You need an apple workaround and they typically don't do that unless requested by law enforcement. Even now, they're making it more impossible to do. You can call and ask.
