"iTunes could not back up iPhone [or iPad] because backup session failed."


Why is my computer generating this pop-up, and how do I correct the issue (what is the issue anyway)?


Last back-up was on August 30th. Downloaded iOS 6 came a couple of days after this. Using iTunes 10.7 (21). Mac mid-2010 intel.
