Windows Vista or Windows 7 iPhone Backup Location:

To access this location in Windows, you may have to enable Hidden files & Folders because by default this folder is hidden in Explorer.

C: > Users > [Name of User] > AppData > Roaming > AppleComputer > MobileSync > Backup

Windows XP iPhone Backup Location:

C: > Documents and Settings > [Name of User] > Application Data > Apple Computer > MobileSync > Backup

Mac OS X iPhone Backup Location:

On your Mac, to find iTunes backup navigate to:

[User Home Folder] > Library > Application Support > Mobile Sync > Backup

This is something I was not aware of, and after finding the iPhone location it will be easy for me to restore my iPhone.
