I am trying to find the location of the backup that iTunes makes from my iPhone.
Depending on your operating system, there is a default folder location for your iTunes backup, here's a blog that covers all versions of Windows, including Windows8: http://www.iphonebackupextractor.com/blog/2012/apr/23/where-are-ipad-and-iphone-backups-stored/
Documents and Settings > USERNAME > Application Data > Apple Computer > MobileSync > Backup
Windows Vista or Windows 7:
Users > USERNAME > AppData > Roaming > Apple Computer > MobileSync > Backup
Replace USERNAME with your personal account name.
Here's where Apple tells you where they are: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4946 In short, it depends whether you're using XP or something later.
XP: Documents and Settings(username)Application DataApple ComputerMobileSyncBackup
Vista, 7, 8: Users(username)AppDataRoamingApple ComputerMobileSyncBackup
Have fun backing up your backup!
iTunes: About iOS backups
Where iTunes backups are stored on your computer
It stores it in the following location:
C:Documents and SettingsUSERNAMEApplication DataApple ComputerMobileSyncBackup
Under that Backup directory is a directory which looks like a GUID and in that is the files that itunes uses to backup your phone and all the settings.
I have no clue why the backslashes have disappeared from the comment. They will be after c: , Documents and Settings, USERNAME, Application Data, Apple Computer.
Its the same as with WordPress Rajaa. The way around it is to use double back-slashes. Thus:
Thanks Alan for the tip. :D
