    Hi. So i got some questions for you...

    I have my iPhone, everything was working great. I had a hard drive crash, and had to reinstall windows. So i am afraid that if i plug my iPhone into my computer, that it will try and create a new 'profile', and erase everything. (songs, apps, pics, etc) So what do i do?

    I did make a backup of the entire iPhone folder prior to the hard drive crashing..thank god. But what do i do, with that folder?, Can i just throw it in to the my music folder? It looks like inside that folder, i got my iTunes library.xml and album artwork folder, iTunes music folder, and Mobile Applications Folder.

    I would love to get the iPhone Syncing back to iTunes, just like before the computer crashed. Without losing anything. I am worried that a bunch of my paid apps, will be lost, and i don't want to have to buy them again!


    Can anybody help?

    thanks!
