Hello imefromakwaibom
Check to make sure that you have a back up by going to the iTunes Preferences and click on the Devices Tab to see a list of backups. If you have your Side Bar showing you can right click on the iPhone and should have the option to restore from back up.

  • Bookmarks have disappeared on two machine unable to restore from backup folder in Firefox. How can I restore my bookmarks?

    All my bookmarks have disappeared on two machines. I tried used the restore function it did not work, and I tried to updated my Plugins and for some reason Firefox would not register the updates . How can I restore my bookmarks?

    Immediately backup the profiles on both machines. Keep the profile backup files and folders somewhere safe outside the Firefox program and profile paths. The Windows Desktop would be a suitable location.
    * see [[Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles]]
    * also note the information on bookmarks [[Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer]]
    Do you use Firefox sync ?
    *[[Firefox Sync - Take your bookmarks, tabs and personal information with you]]
    that is not itself a backup, but you may consider the synced second device to be a backup
    Restored bookmarks overwrite the existing bookmarks. You may still have some left, but unfortunately you could have overwritten most or all of them with corrupt copies. If you backup the profile at least you have access to copies of whatever automatic backups were made. Note in future that it is good practice to periodically make backups.
    Post back again once you have backed up the profiles, and read the linked articles.

  • HT4946 cannot find itunes backup on my PC (win xp). want to move over to external hard drive to restore from backup bc PC not enough space

    i just restored my ipad2 to iOS 6.1.3 yesterday. i have been trying to restore from backup, but i keep getting error messages from itunes (running latest version of itunes) that says there is not enough space to save the backup on the computer. i have tried clearing up as much space on my PC (windows xp), but there is still not enough room. and ive tried disk cleanup on my computer and resetting the ipad and running it through recovery mode (as some articles sugggested it would help with restoring after failed attempts). i read on another question in the apple support discussions that someone just moved his whole backup folder into his external harddrive and then he was able to restore from backup.
    the backup is definitely saved on my computer (itunes confirms that), and the backup folder is supposed to be here  \Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\, but im still not finding it with that file path. i get as far as "username" and then i dont see "application data" and so on. but when i try searching that file path in google chrome, i find it and i see it, but its strange that i cant find it in the "docs and settings" folder in my C drive.
    please help! i just want to be able to move the backup folder to my external to restore from backup. thank you in advance!!

    Thank you! I was able to find it. Im sorry, i have a few follow up questions. Does the iTunes have to be running from my external as well to do the restore from backup? And if so, how do I move iTunes to external and run it from there? Also, I just copied over the "backup" folder (last part of that file path to my external, is that enough, or did I have to copy it starting from the beginning (docs and settings and so forth)? Lastly, when I select restore from backup in iTunes, would it automatically know that it's the copy on my external to restore backup from? Or do I have to delete or do something with the original file path in my computer?
    Thank you!

  • Time Machine will not let me restore from backups after June, 2013.  I can see the files on the external hard drive but Time Machine skips all of them and goes back to June, 2013. Does anyone have any idea what the problem is?

    telling me to buy a new router is NOT a solution.
    And why not? Apple is selling these things like BigMacs. They can't make enough of them. You've been suffering since May because you refuse to get a decent router.
    Can you imagine if a company that makes a refrigerator told me that I needed to upgrade my electrical system to rectify a problem with their device? What kind of response IS that?!?!
    What if the problem with their device is that it requires a new-fangled "grounded" outlet and your circa 1890 house doesn't have grounded outlets. Would you refuse to purchase a $ 25 adapter on principle?

  • After restore from backup, iphone is not getting start, only apple logo is there on screen

    after restore from backup, iphone is not getting start, only apple logo is there on screen

    Hi there.
    Try some basic trouble shooting steps first, before looking into some advanced issues that might be causing this. The first thing I would try, is holding down the power button and home button at the same time until the screen turns off on you. See what steps you can take from there, if any.
    Kind Regards.

    Follow the steps in this article to restore from iTunes back up:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1766
    Since you say you cant see the back up in iTunes you should be able to see it when following the last step where it says for iTunes 10.7 or earlier. Dont worry as this step also works for iTunes 11.

  • I have made a burn folder with photos exported from I-photo.  It now shows in information, that the date is created and modified is different from the original digitized date.  How can I get the original date to show in the info from Finder?

    I have made a burn folder with photos exported from I-photo.  It now shows in information, that the date  created and modified is different from the original digitized date.  How can I get the original date to show in the info from Finder?

    The Finder reports File information. The date and time of the photo are in the Photo's Exif metadata. The Finder has no awareness of this. All photos apps on any system do.

  • I forgot the backup encryption password in iTunes how can I get my backup data back?

    I forgot the backup encryption password in iTunes how can I get my backup data back?

    You need to ask Apple to reset your security questions; this can be done by clicking here and picking a method, or if your country isn't listed, filling out and submitting this form.
    They wouldn't be security questions if they could be bypassed without Apple verifying your identity.

    Topic: Microsoft's Silverlight for Mac. I wanted to video stream a movie via Verizon FIOS. It demanded Silverlight.dmg.  Macbok Pro refused to download from 3rd party supplier (CNET). How can I get this from Apple?  The Verizon FIOS video website was churning on the error message, "Checking device registration status."  It got stuck in a loop. Verizon tech support never came on. Was on terminal "Hold."  Any recommendations?

    Never download anything from CNET. The site is untrustworthy and is known to distribute Windows spyware intentionally.

  • Ipod Touch does not want to turn on after I Restored from Backup to recover notes

    I was trying to restore a note in the notes app and followed these instructions
    If you synced your notes from iPhone while these notes were still on it and you haven't synced again since they were deleted, you may be able to recover them by restoring your phone to your last backup (the backup includes notes). This will revert your settings and data to those contained in the backup (not just notes) so be sure to save any more recent data prior to restoring). To do this:
    1. Without connecting your phone, open iTunes on your computer and go to Preferences, on the Devices tab check "Prevent...from syncing automatically".
    2. Connect your phone to your computer, right-click on the name of your phone when it appears in iTunes on the left sidebar and select Restore from Backup, choose your most recent backup to restore from.
    3. When this finishes you can go back to iTunes>Prerferences>Devi ces and re-enable automatic syncing.
    That you may recover the notes.
    When I try to turn on my ipod after that it wont turn on and turns itself back off. I did try connecting it so it can recharge then turning it on but it wont turn on. I dont wnat to restore and I want to find another solution or way to resolve this problem. When i plug it into the recharger iit wont connect to itunes or turn on. Please help? Thank you.

    I finally clicked and held the power and home button and connected to itunes and now am in iPod recovery mode. Thank you.

  • HT204150 I have added another phone to my account and set up iCloud   The person  that is using the new phone found all my phone contacts on her phone so she starred deleting them from her phone which made them disappear from my phone....how can I get the

    (I added a new phone to my account and gave the phone to a friend she saw that all my contacts were on her phone so she started deleting them.  Now they are gone from my phone?  How can I get them back?   On I cloud

    You can try restoring to your last backup, but there is no gaurantee that this will restore your contacts.
    Your friend needs to set up a different iCloud account with a different ID.  Have them go to Settings>iCloud, tap Delete Account, choose Keep on My iDevice when prompted, then set up a new iCloud account with a different ID, and choose Merge to upload the data to the new account.  After doing this, you can each go to your own iCloud account on icloud.com and delete the other person's data from your account.  Don't delete any data until you are on separate accounts or it will also be deleted from the other person's device.
