I recently made a full backup of my iPhone 7 to my computer a day back. I was adding some new songs in Itunes then I connected the Phone to those songs.

Unfortunately as soon as Iphone connected to iTunes, it automatically made a full back-up of my phone, and I now can't see the previous back-up I made. Please tell me!

How to recover that Old BackUp.
