    Question how to view Back up files

    hey guys, I just upgraded to 2.1 software, and had to restore my phone from scratch (because back up was "corrupted") but now i don't have any of my camera roll pictures, i'm missing some application data, and several contacts! how can i get this back without having to restore the whole back up file to my phone (something i can not do anyways, as mentioned above!!) i don't want to loose this important information

    where would the itunes back up files be located? how could i access it?
    I have a PC


    thank you for your help

    I think it saves everything as a bundle in one big file that you can't extract.

    Well that's possible but you should find someone you trust with a mac and give them the backup folder/s in /Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/ to extract the files for you.

    Backing is up is for when you lose everything on your phone so you can get it back to the phone. If your backup is corrupt then I don't think there's anything you can do.

    mdhelper can often restore most of the data, but unfortunately this is Mac only and Gabster is on a Windows PC. I had restore a "corrupt" backup once, it worked. Dont know if this is working in general and all cases but at least on a Mac its worth trying it with the little app.

    And as Erica states in her blog. You can copy the complete folder from the Windows PC copy it on a Mac into the Backup directory and run mdhelper
