    As far as I know there is only a solution, if you are on a Mac or at least know someone with a Mac.

    Download (http://ericasadun.com/ftp/Macintosh/...-universal.zip), unpack and place mdhelper on the desktop. Start application Terminal and change directory with
    cd Desktop/
    chmod 755 mdhelper
    ./mdhelper -C .*

    The programm looks inside ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/ for the backup folders and extracts the files. You will find a new folder on the desktop containing everything.

    You have to SFTP into your updated iPhone then and put the once back you want to have.

    TUAW did an article about Backup Extractor. Seems easy enough to use. I've not tried this program myself yet. It is only available for Mac and is free to use (by donation).

    Great finding!

    Wow, just tried this app. it is really great. not just doing the backup but still maintain the file/folder structure.
    This is a great solution if you are on a Mac (need 10.5 Leopard)
