    I'm using a MacBook running 10.6.2 with iTunes 9.2 and an iPhone 3G.

    I just did an erase and install of the OS on the MacBook and am working on restoring things from my Time Capsule backup. In order to get my iTunes back the way it was so I don't have to start all over, what do I need to copy over?

    So far, I've copied the following:

    ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync

    Are there any other directories / files that need to be copied over?

    I'm trying to avoid having to set up my phone, playlists, genius info, etc all from scratch. Do I also need to copy the iTunes application itself from the backup or should I be able to use the fresh one installed from Software Update? They are both iTunes 9.2.
