iTunes - Located the backup files

March 2017



Issue


I have made a backup of my iPhone data using iTunes and I need to save this backup file to a USB before formatting my PC. How to locate this file?

Solution


iTunes gives a unique name to the backup files for each device. To find the backup you just created, change the window display to display the date and time of creation or last modified. iTunes stores the backup files in the following locations:
  • Mac: ~ / Library / Application Support / MobileSync / Backup /<\/gras>
  • Windows XP: <gras>Documents and Settings \ (username) \ Application Data \ Apple Computer \ MobileSync \ Backup \
  • Windows Vista and Windows 7: Users \ (username) \ AppData \ Roaming \ Apple Computer \ MobileSync \ Backup \
