    Did you upgrade straight from 1.1.2 or earlier?

    Installing Cydia programs on a phone that has no internet connection: read this.

    Editing binary .plist, .strings, .nib and .xib files:
    * on your computer: Windows tool / conversion website.
    * on your iPhone: convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities) or edit them with iFile (Cydia links).

    Went from 1.1.4 to 2.1

    Found a folder which I think is related. The folder is full of folders. The folder name is IPOD photo cache (I don't have an Ipod!). There are 2 set's of folders starting @ F1 to F50. If i click on one , windows says it's empty

    Thanks for the reply

    iPod Photo Cache contains the smaller versions of the pictures in My Pictures on your computer. You know, when iTunes says "preparing photos for use on iPhone" or something like that, it's making these. Not related to the backup issue.

    The backups are in C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup. How many folders do you have in there, and do their names all start with the same very long code?

    Anyway, it's not easy to read the contents of this folder; I'm not sure people have found out how to do it.

    Got 4 folders with names that are really long and in those folders there are a bunch of files with crazy names/numbers!

    Wish I had a Mac, but do not know anybody with one !

    Thanks Jim and n350z for your help so far

    So do the 4 folder names all start with the same long code?

    In the folder names, after the long code, there is a date and time. Is there a folder with a date and time from before your upgrade?

    If so, it must contain your photos. You could find someone with a Mac to extract them using n350z's method, or you could try to restore that backup again, maybe...
