My laptop broke. The hard drive is now an external Hard Drive. I know my music is fine but what about my Backups for my iPhone 5? I recently had to restore my iPhone due to MAJOR technical error. Will the iTunes on my new comp recognize the backups when I transfer all of the files from my old laptop to my new one?
Below, I have attached an article that has the most relevent answer to your question. You can move your backup file from one computer to the next. You must transfer this file to the correct file path before iTunes will read it. See the section labeled "Where iTunes backups are stored on your computer'.
