    What would be nice is if you could save say the last 3 backups and then have the option to which of the 3 backups to restore with. This way if something on the last backup was causing a problem, the problem that caused you to want to restore, you wouldn't be restoring the same problem back to the IPhone.

    Try going under the user library instead of just the system library.

    Example:/Users/YOURUSER_NAMEHERE/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup.

    That all sounds great that itunes backs up your data before you sync your iphone, but what if something goes wrong and it syncs wrong and all your data is lost - so my question is:

    in itunes: How do you restore your iphone backup back to your phone?
