    Why not. Just make sure you have updated iTunes to the latest version.

    From your original message, I thought you had the backup!

    Update iTunes on the computer that you think has the backup and connect your phone and try to restore. If you have a backup it will show up as available to use. If not, you are likely out of luck.
