OMG, what the heck is going on here with Apple !?!?!? I googled this ALL DAY yesterday and there are literally hundreds of folks who are locked out of their back-ups, WTH !!! I would like to make an unencrypted backup, but when I uncheck the box, the "password" window pops up. Like many folks, I only use 1 or 2 passwords for these kind of things, but of course they do NOT work !!! I have tried every password that entered my head and none of them work. (Just like most of you, I do NOT forget my passwords ......... ever) Over the last 6 years I prolly have over 20 backups, with the last one/only one being encrypted, but now I do not have access to ANY of them. WTH !!!!!!!!!! Like many people out there, I am beyond peed !!!!! There has got to be a way, and I will NOT give up on this. There must be folks on this site that know exactly what I am talking about, and there has to be a fix. I have ifunbox installed, and can follow directions, so PLEASE HELP !!!
