I backed up about half of my iPhone on my computer and it's taking too

much space.

I would like to find the backup and delete it.

I accidentally disconnected the iPhone in the middle of it's syncing. But still I think it took too much space than I can afford.

EDIT: iPhone backups are located at
Code:
C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup

  1. Appdata is a hidden folder, to view it you must:
  2. Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Folder Options.
  3. Click the View tab.
  4. Under Advanced settings, click Show hidden files, folders, and drives, and then click OK.

Thanks. Is there a way to see in an organized fashion how many movies are taking how much space and how much music files and all other files are taking how much space, so that I can pick the ones that i deem to be delete-worthy and delete them?

You can simply plug in your iPhone to the computer and open iTunes. It shows the amount of space used by apps, videos, music, etc right in the Summary tab.
