Can I restore my iPhone if the .plist files are missing?

I needed to restore my iPhone to factory settings and update my firmware.

I backed up my iphone BEFORE doing the restore. Once the restore started, the cable disconnected and I had to start the process over again. When it came to the point to chose a backup, the most recent back up wasn’t available.

I was able to fine the 25 GB file in the mobile syncs folder, but the manifest.db and .plist files were missing. I have downloaded iBackupBot and another program and are able to SEE my files, but I can’t get them to put the info back on my phone.

ANY help this Marine can get would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!!

    if you have a backup on icloud, restore than use icloud to backup your files.
