    Iphone backups
    When an iPhone is synced and a backup is performed, does the backup replace the previous backup?

    Is is possible to restore an iPhone with a version of its backup other than its most recent backup?

    What are you trying to restore?

    Apps
    Music
    Videos
    Mail?

    And do you have a Time Machine back-up

    iTunes only keeps the most recent backup unless you go in and manually keep previous backups by making copies into a new location or changing the name in the current location.

    Here's a simple walk through to manage your backups. Must say though, that doing a restore simply should rarely be needed. With 2 iPhones in the house for over 3 years now and the only time I've had a reason to use restore was when I decided to remove the jailbreak from one of them.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
