    What about songs will I lose those? I don't want to lose my last backup.

    You won't "lose" any songs. You just won't be able to play them. The physical files will remain on your computer.

    After you de-authorize all your machines, you can re-authorize your main computer, re-sync you phone and run a new backup. You'll be fine.

    Backup isn't tied to "Authorized" computers, the authorization is just for DRM media. Won't affect your existing backups.

    Ok so by deauthorizing all 5 comps my previous backup will NOT get deleted correct?
