    Hi guys so I have a little bit of a problem, I got my computer wiped and now I want to sync my phone to my computer, how can I get all the stuff from my phone to sync to my computer? It only gives me the option to erase everything. I have a WD Drive that I synced my computer with before a had it wiped, but I don't know what files I'M looking for to be able get it to recognize this a the computer. It says I have 2 computers authorized, but its the same computer and the other windows vista system has been erased.

    Thanks for your help!

    Well it would help if you told us how you backed up to the WD drive.

    Here is the basic information concerning where iTunes stores it's default backups when you do a sync function.

    By default, backups are stored in the following folders:

    Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/
    Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
    Windows Vista and Windows 7: \Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
