✔ Best Answer
You could try this quoted from

1. After getting the error, when it asked again if I wanted to resume restore, I cancelled.

2. Phone auto-synced from iTunes, which I allowed.

3. After sync, I unplugged phone from computer, did a hard shut down on phone (wait 30sec-1min), then rebooted.

4. I began the configuration set-up process from the phone, picking "install from iTunes backup" when prompted.

5. I reconnected my phone to computer.

6. I selected (again) the option to restore from backup.

according to apple they suggest restoring it twice more then taking it in for service, so it appears to be a know problem.
