    I just did something similar this weekend. I installed a larger HDD in my laptop and reinstaleld everything. When I synched my iPhone, I did not loose any music because I manage my music, I do not let iTunes manage it for me. However, I lost most of my apps, which was easy to reinstalled because they were in the application folder in iTunes. However, I lost all the settings in every application, for example, in my XM app I lost all my favorites, had to re-enter my U/P, In my iCam app I also had to re-enter my U/P. The biggest lost was my recordings in my Recorder app, had various lectures I attended recorded. I also lost all my pictures I had in this Picture Vault App. Overall, I am not too upset about any of it, plus I was finally able to get rid of apps I should have deleted long ago but kept on my phone just in case.

    Now I just need to get rid of all the duplications in my Application Folder in iTunes!! :mad:
