This article: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1766 provides the location of the iPhone backups, along with details about the data stored in the backup.
+iTunes places the backup files in the following places:+
+On a Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/+
+On Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\+
+On Windows Vista: \Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\+
Yea, you can just reimport the apps and games or download the iPhone apps again.
I have read that article but the path provided does not exist on my system. I do not have a file "Application Data" under my user name.
Your computer is probably set to NOT show hidden files, I know on my PC which has Vista, I need to go into Tools menu/folder options/click on the view tab, you need to look down the list that will have appeared in the little window for SHOW HIDDEN FILES & NAMES, see the picture in the below link. You need to change this to show hidden files etc and you then should be able to see this folder.
