My iPhone 4 had over 5 GB of "other".  I tried restoring from a backup on my computer and got an error reading:
"iTunes could not restore the iPhone "xxxx's iPhone" because not enough free space is available on the iPhone."

Then the phone would restart.


After reading a couple other solutions, I decided to resore to factory settings and then restore from my backup.  However, after restoring to factory settings, I am getting the SAME ERROR when I try to restore from the backup saved on my computer.


Please help me!  Is there any way to see what is in the backup file to choose what restores?  Probably not.... Is there any way to get my data back??
