I have a problem with my 3GS, not sure if it's corrupt data or hardware.

Restore from backup has not solved problem. Therefore am minded to restore and setup as new iphone. I understand all settings are wiped, data that is sync'd of course remains.

If I setup as new iphone, what happens to the former backup file(s) within iTunes?

If overwritten or otherwise made inaccessible, can I manually save it and re-place it within itunes later?

It would be great if I can set up as new iphone, with security of knowing that I could restore again from backup file.
