Putting a password on a backup encrypts it, so you cannot recover it.

after hours of trials and errors and reading undreds of posts here and elsewhere this is my final conclusion:
1) This is not an itunes bug, there must be a password
2) The password is one of your earlier , and possibly the very first password you used for your apple id, but i have no clue why!!
3) For me it was my very first apple id password!
4 ) Good luck

This was annoying the crap out of me when I was trying to set up my 5S and I found a way around it. I backed up old iPhone 5 one more time, but this time I unchecked the "Encrypt iPhone backup" option before doing so. Once the backup was complete, I set up my iPhone 5S from that version of my iPhone 5 backup.
The above will obviously not work if you're trying to restore your phone to a backup version from a previous date. Hope this helps.

Go back to the VERY first 4 digit PASSCODE you used for your iphone... that will be this password...worked for me...
