Question: iTunes Encrypted Backup
I encrypted an iTunes backup of an iPhone 4S and lost the password. I understand that I can't recover the iTunes backup.
To fix the problem, I did the following
1. Created an iCloud backup from iPhone 4s
2. Deleted all iTunes encrypted backups from iTunes account
3. Erased all content and settings on iPhone 4s
4. Restored from iCloud backup to the same iPhone 4s
The problem is that when I connect to iTunes is does not give me the option of unchecking the 'Encrypt iPhone Backup'. There is no current backup on iTunes and it says the phone has never been backed up to iCloud.
The restored data on the iPhone 4s is correct. How do remove the encryption option?
iTunes 12. 7.3.46
Any help would be appreciated!
iPhone 4S, iOS 9.3.5
