I'm undecided between replacing my iPhone 3GS with an iPhone 4S or a Galaxy S3, but that's by-the-by.
I'm looking at either totally formatting my HD and/or replacing it with a new, bigger HD. It's likely though that i'll have replaced the phone before i get a new HD.
What i want is to backup the iPhone backup & put it back in whatever directory it's supposed to be in once Windows has been fresdhly installed again.
This is so that if i get a 4S or even if i get an S3 but replace it with an iPhone in the future, then i can restore from the backup & have all my old settings, text messages, apps etc etc on the new iPhone.
Hopefully what i've said has made sense. If so, how do you do it? Thanks.

Doesn't work. When you restore it back, it only places the apps back and not the app data.
Just copy over the entire %AppData%\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup folder and you'll be fine. (%AppData% automatically points you to the right folder)
