iPad2 corrupt backup on pc

Recently, I upgraded my iPad2 to OS 8. I was not happy with the performance and downloaded the OS 7.12 operating system and downgraded the software OS only to find the backup to the Win 7 PC was corrupt. after a considerable amount of data usage etc, my iPad is back to square one.

My questions here are:
Where is the backup on my PC? - Found
Can I delete this and redo my backup? - Found and deleted via iTunes
How can I validate the backup?
With the recent OS 8.2 update, is it really worth me doing this given the experience previously?

Thanks in advance, Barry
