Worked on pre-iOS10 BU, named 2b64ba4551fb154cc37479dc5e179424cd62f1a9, but a new backup with same install of AYT gives error that it can't find that BU folder after a BU is made with iOS10.0.1 installed on iPhone 6s. iTunes 12.5.1 used in both cases. On Windows 10 with anniversary update, all updates and a fresh install of AYT. The new BU folder name is 224a025f0e3f82883d0c36c193fefccb50f7cc4b
(There are two different iPhones backup up, a 5 and a 6s. AYT shows both, the 5 was from 2015. Choosing that still works, shows the texts. Selecting the one from the 6s on iOS10.0.1 newly created fails.

Today, for iPhone 6 on iOs 10.2 with iTunes with Win 7 PC I received the below error:
The required iPhone database file does not exist: 'C:\Users\kkh\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\e3b87e1019fea64ff3d285c2a3da8921d1ea387b\31bb7ba8914766d4ba40d6dfb6113c8b614be442.mddat

Seems like my back folder is different than the first poster? Correct?

I have a fix for the latest iOS backup format. Very simple. Let me know if you want the changes; alternatively, I can just fork your project.
