Issue: Can't Restore, Corrupt Backup after Upgrading to iOS 9

"I needed to make space on iPhone because of the many videos she had on it. When I plugged the phone into our iMac, and connected to iPhoto to transfer the videos over the upload started as it normally does. However, during the middle of the transfer iTunes interrupted and informed that the phone was now upgrading to the newest software version (iOS 9). Unfortunately during this process the software update failed and the phone crashed. We were left with 2 options "restore from backup" or "restore iPhone". I tried several times to restore from the backup and we received the same error message 'iTunes could not restore the iPhone because the backup was corrupt or incompatible with iPhone that is being restored'."
