I have been having issues with my home button and proximity sensor on my iPhone 4.  The Apple Store said over the phone to restore it.  I asked if it would screw up all my settings, and the guy said no, it would be the same.  Not only did it screw up all my settings, but I lost three years of data in the process...text messages, app data (yup Angry Birds progress gone) and pictures...yes, they are backed up in a million different folders on my PC, but I wanted them in that one on my phone.  Every time I tried to restore it said:  "iTunes could not restore the "iPhone" because the backup could not be saved on the computer.  I am in the Apple Store now syncing a new phone because the home button issues made it worth replacing, but the Genius said all my data is lost.  I guess I have it set to override everytime I back up...can't figure out how to change that, but shouldn't backups be saved somewhere on my system???  I really would like to get all that data back.  Genius said she doesn't know PCs and no one else in the store knows PCs.  Um...ok.

iPhone 4, Windows 7
