Every since the last IOS update I keep getting this error. I tried several POC and phone resets and restarts. I tried removing the old backups and then reseting some more but I keep getting this error.


"itunes could not back up the iphone "iphone" because an error occurred"


I searched online and I cna't find any solutions that work. Is this Apples way of trying to force you to use iCloud or is there another way to restore my phone without using the restore function and losing my data?



iPhone 4S, Windows 7
