So, I was so excited about my new PC that I went ahead and got started on setting it up. I put in my SSD (which had my previous Windows installation on it) and start reformatting. I was under the impression that I had backed everything that I needed up. Little did I realize that iPhone backups are actually stored on the main boot drive, and in the process I erased them. So right now I'm mortified of plugging in my iPhone. I'm not particularly worried about music or anything like that; I remembered to backup my music library. I AM particularly worried about contacts and photos. How do I ensure that iTunes does not wipe these? Is there a way to create a backup file from the phone, independent of iTunes, with third-party software? All of the data is on the iPhone. I just need it to be on the computer as well. Also, is there any way I could achieve this via signing up for MobileMe briefly? Cheers.
