    Hi all

    I have installed iTunes on my work computer and my home computer.
    How do I sync my iPad so that I dont delete my programs, pictures etc.

    I've installed some apps from my work iTunes but when i connect the ipad to my home somputer it says that it will delete any apps that it not in this library :-0

    Is there a way to have two installations of iTunes and have those in sync?

    Not recommended why can't you just decide to use either home or work.

    Copy the music from one to the other therefore no conflict.

    Apps can be reloaded at no chug to the one you select as master ok

    Isnt there any way to copy the ipad backup in itunes to a usb drive and copy it to another pc with itunes?

    Other wise one has to create a list of all purchased/downloaded apps. if for example you have installed 100+ apps you have to maintain two "backups"
