I backed up my iPhone onto my computer.  I'm not sure if my videos that I filmed personally were backed up, and I don't know where to find the backup on the computer.  How can I find these?


iPhone 3GS, iOS 6.1.4, Windows XP

    The backup is only for use in restoring settings and some content to the iphone.

     

    You should be importing all pics/vids taken with the iphone to your computer regularly as you would with any digital camera.

    So is it impossible to view the pictures/videos until I restore them to a new handset?

    That is correct.

     

    There are programs that claim they can extract data from iOS backups to be used, but these programs are not endorsed or supported by Apple.
