I got this strange error while updating to 4.2.

"iTunes could not restore the iPhone because the backup could not be saved on the computer."

To get this error I attached it, synced to back it up, found the software update, downloaded it and installed it. When it restarted it asked if I wanted to restore from backup so I selected the appropriate one. It got about 60% through and then gave me that error.

iPhone 4, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
