    Encrypted iphone backup

    I am trying to migrate data from old 6s to new 7 and did a manual back-up onto my laptop. At NO point whatsoever have I been prompted for a password yet my backup now appears to be encrypted. Apple telephone consultant insists I must have entered a password but i didn't! My local Apple expert has another client who experienced same. Has anyone else experienced this? Any advice how to resolve it?

    If you have an encrypted backup but can't remember the password, then I'm afraid there is nothing that can be done....that back up is useless unless you can enter the correct password.
