    Default Itunes Restore - How to select appropriate Backup ...???

    Every time I connect my Iphone 4S to Itunes to Sync it also gets backed up to my computer. Itunes then dutifully shows "Latest Backup today at xx.xx to this computer".
    In addition I've also manually backed up the phone in which case Itunes indicates the same message with the appropriate time.

    BUT ... now I go into manually do a Restore and when I select "Restore Backup" the drop down window shows me backups from months ago and not the one(s) I might have done earlier today or yesterday. I've tried scrolling to get to more recent ones and can't get the window to scroll to a recent b/u - the display contents are seemingly fixed ...

    What am I missing ...???

    Help !!!

    Find the iTunes Preferences... you should then see a list of back-ups - and be able to delete the oldest ones to clean things up - then restore and have a better list to pick from.
