Where does itunes store backups from my iphone?  I want to make an extra copy somewhere else incase my computer should crash.


Im using windows.


I read somewhere that they are stored in c:\users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup


Is that accurate?  All thats there is a couple of folders with ridiculously long names like 5e696f1ad14e411680c85415db7d8e6b8ab348273 and inside there are a bunch of small files with similar garbage names.  Are these the backups?  I thought the backup was a single file like an .ispw file or something?


Can somebody confirm?


If I want to take this backup and make a copy of it and then use it again (say my computer crashes or I get a new one or whatever) how do I go about it?



iPhone 4, iOS 4.3.2
