    Hi,
    I currently had a virus in my computer and thus i had to Format it. During this i lost all the data of Syncs and Apps and stuff.
    When i click on the "Sync Apps" in my iPhone Tab. The Preview on the right changes from my apps to No Apps except for bookmarks. What i want to do is keep all the Apps as they are currently and want to get all the Apps which i have bought during the purchase of my iPhone on the list on the left, as my Apple Account records what i buy, i should some how get the apps back on the list which should include me downloading them again.

    Thanks,
    Badd.

    You re-download the apps. Since you've already purchased them, you'll be able to re-download for free.
    Don't you have any backups that are separate from your main HD? For example, an external drive?

    Connect your iPhone to iTunes, cancel the sync, and then where it shows your iPhone in the pane on the left-hand side, right click and select 'Transfer Purchases'.

    What if i want to transfer ALL the apps i have previously purchased, in the past? which have been deleted from the phone?
    Edit: the purchases must have been recorded so, can i transfers all of them this way?
