Saving apps after an HD Wipe


Dec 23, 2010, 11:52 AM
So, a while ago, I wiped my HD disc clean. It was catastrophic failure mode, and needed to give it a good scrubbing... I didn't really have a whole lot of "Gee, I should save this" time before it happened.

Thus, everything that's on my Iphone is more or less an orphan. There's no files on my computer whatsoever. I had to redownload Itunes, so there's no memory whatsoever of anything essentially.

The music is one thing, if that can't be salvaged, so be it. I had that backed up elsewhere, and although it would be a pain in the butt to re-sync, there's like 2000 songs on there that I never listen to that could use a good purge anyway.

But my apps... I really have no desire to lose everything saved on them. That would make me cry.
