    So,

    I've got an iPhone 3GS here and it was in the middle of a restore in iTunes and the computer got shutdown but shutdown was cancelled because of iTunes. The problem is, and I assume it is related to that although I don't see how, it won't restore from the backup.

    I've even "reset all data and content" from the phone itself but every time I hit "restore from backup", it begins and eventually says "iTunes was interrupted, would you like to continue restoring?" or something along those lines.

    Any idea's about this? Thanks.

    Thanks for your reply,

    I managed to figure it out, although I can't remember what I did. It just eventually worked.

    This has happened a lot. Looks like Apples motto is changing from It Just Works to "It Just May Eventually Work".
