No need for third party utilities. Since at least Lion, to get to the Library: In Finder go to the 'Go' tab whilst holding down the Option Key. Select Library and a new Window will open for that Folder.Well, if you have a Mac... They're in Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup. They're not really user accessible but you can use third party software to view/modify them. If your phone had to be replaced or you restored it, you can restore from backup in iTunes. Sorry I couldn't tell you more. A Google search will give you some good information.
Install outlook and sync it to iCloud using the 'iCloud Control Panel for Windows'.I guess I was little unclear. Let's make it more concrete and take a disaster scenario I'd like to be prepared for*:
How'm I gonna accomplish these tasks?
- The iPhone is stolen and for some reason I can't access icloud either.
- I don't have time to get a new phone. (and who knows, maybe I want to shop a non-Apple device. Sacrilege, I know.)
- I have to see immediately what appts I have coming up (Calendar) and I have to make some phone calls (Contacts).
BTW, I have a PC, not a Mac.
* Probably improbable, but it can't hurt to be prepared.
