Corrupt iPhone Backup! iTunes

  CNorts3 00:15 27 Jun 2020

Sisters phone was having an issue with the calling, so we backed up and restored back to factory - when we go to restore iPhone it tells me it cannot restore due to "reading and writing" issues. I find out this is due to me not having enough space in the C drive, so delete all other backups aside from the one i need.

I then have enough space to restore the phone - try and do it to find the backup "corrupted" - any ideas?

I am sort of guessing that the last backup was unable to complete due to lack of space on the drive it was being backed up to and hence it is now being reported as corrupted.

You are therefore going to have to manually re-install the apps that were present before. Things like music and pictures I hope you have saved elsewhere?
