So here's the deal. My Ipad2 works great. Haven't encountered any serious problems yet.
However, my regular laptop that I used before I got my ipad recently had some big problems. It contracted a nasty virus. Really really bad. So damaging in fact I had to take it to the computer repair people and they had to wipe the computer and reboot windows. Luckily I was able to have them save my music files and some other things.
The problem is that now I'm worried about plugging my ipad into my computer or hooking it up with itunes again. It's not that I did that frequently, but I've been thinking about jailbreaking my iPad2.
I was told that if I hook my ipad2 up to my computer it will wipe everything off of it but since I downloaded the apps from the app store I'll be able to re-download them all without having to repurchase them. That's fine, but I have over 100 apps I've downloaded. And although I know it would be fine I really want to avoid the hassle of having to do that, not to mention having to re-import my music files.
Is there anyway I could hook my iPad2 up to my computer and back it up without it wiping everything off of it? Also I need to know how to transfer the music files to a file on my laptop without it automatically launching itunes when I plug it in.
Please help, sincerely,
