iTunes Backup Encryption Password
by Kurashiki - 1/3/13 4:30 PM
I am unable to remember the password I entered to back up my iTunes. I understand that I am probably SOL and that all of the back ups I have saved to date are most likely gone forever unless I can remember that password.
I currently back up my iPhone 4 no problem, but I would like to uncheck the "encrypt back up files" box so that any new back ups are not encrypted. Each time I try to do this, I am asked to enter my old password and since I am unable to do so, the check box remains checked. So it appears that I am stuck in encrypt mode.
Is there any way around this that does not involve reinstalling iTunes and wiping my iPhone clean.
Thanks in advance.
