Updated to iOS 6, how do I access my backup?

I've had a jail broken iPhone version 5.1.1, and decided to update to IOS 6. Now, iTunes has been automatically been backing up my iPhone but when I updated to the IOS 6 and had two options (set up new iPhone, or get it from backup.. I couldn't access the backup from 5.1.1 to regain all my contacts pictures messages and more...

Now I assume it's because the iPhone was previously jail broken but still THERE IS a back up, meaning there might be some way to access my files..

Thank you for the help!

Were u doing this on the device or through iTunes?
Not sure what u mean by "couldnt access", if it was an option, u should have been able to select it....
