I want to back up and from now on sync and use iPad with my new PC but I'm afraid if I connect it to itunes it will delete all my data from ipad or something like that. I really hate itunes and wish I didn't have to install it so I'm trying to get as much as information as I can. I do have media folder from music backed up along with apple computers one that is like 40gb big for me, but I'd rather not use them if I can and make fresh new backup. (with all data stored on ipad ofc, comics, books, apps etc) I think this should happen: I install itunes, connect ipad, it asks me to back up, I do and it transfers everything to new PC and all is great. But I do not want to risk it just formatting my ipad or something like that because I've read a lot of posts that are not reassuring. What do?
