after synced iphone, app disappeared
im not too familar with itunes, so i dont know if i did anything wrong.
i wanted to upgrade my firmware (iphone 3g, currently on 2.2 firmware, jailbroken), so first i did was to back up my iphone. and fyi, i have just bought a new computer (windows), no previous backups or songs or anything on this comp, it's a clean slate, and i have just downloaded itunes, authorized it to recognize this comp and everything.
when i synced it, itunes kept asking me if i want to replace my iphone with data from the itunes, which was empty of course. is that normal?
so anyway, i went ahead and synced it, hoping the datas from my iphone would sync TO itunes instead, not the other way round. looks like it did as i hoped. the problem is, i noticed at least 1 app went missing, which happens to be an app that i paid for. it's not on my newly itunes backup, and it has also been wiped out from my iphone. curiously, all my other recently installed apps are okay.
i dont know if i should reinstall that app and pay for it one more time, then maybe claim back with apple (asumming i can still find my receipt), or how should i go around it.
but in any case, how do you actually back up your stuff properly using itunes without having such problem?

i have another related problem. so, after i restored to new firmware, and jailbroke it again with quickpwn like what i always did, i noticed several apps are still not back, but i believe they are installed because i saw some of them under my iphone > settings and in my itunes app backup.
fyi, i installed an app called categories from cydia before the new firmware upgrade, and i realize most of the apps that disappears are those that i stored inside these categories folders.
i did a little google, seems like this is a common problem. and saw someone posted a solution by installing poof or something from cydia. but the problem is, my cydia is missing (it was inside a folder before).
what should i do?

A lot of my apps have dissapeared from itunes and won't install on my iphone (did a reset). I know I can download them from itunes for free, but it is about 100 of them so it will take a lot of time to find them again in the app store.. Is there a way to easily download all purchased apps? A "download all purchased items" button or a list of all purchased items in itunes?
