Where are iPhone backup files stored on my Windows computer?

The location of the iPhone backup files generated in iTunes is the following directory:

Windows XP:
\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.


Assuming you have older backups:
Mac OS: ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup
Windows XP: %AppData%\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup
Windows Vista: %AppData%\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup
Windows 7: %AppData%\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup
Go onto iTunes, right click on your device on the left-hand side bar, and their should be an option 'Restore From Backup', or something similar, click that and it'll restore your iPhone to a previous backup.

iPhone Backup Location for Mac OS X

In Mac OS X your iPhone files are backed up at the following location:

~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/

The (~) symbol signifies your home directory, which is at the same place where all your other personal documents are stored.

iPhone Backup Location for Windows 8, 7, XP, and Vista

Windows XP stores all of your iPhone backup files in this location:

C:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup

Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 back up the iPhone files here:

C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup

Obviously if your main drive is not C: then you’ll have to change that, same goes for ‘user’

Note to Windows users: the Application Data and AppData directories and their contents (iPhone backups included) are considered ‘hidden’ so you will need to enable ‘Show hidden files’ within Windows Explorer before you will be able to see the files.

Hi friends, you can sync data to iTuns, or use iCloud to backup your iPhone files. If you need to transfer data from iPhone to computer, you can use the third party software, like MobiKin Doctor for iOS. Hope this helps!
