    Not to long ago my son's laptop died. He also has an iPhone and had iTunes installed on the laptop.

    I removed the hard drive from the dead laptop and copied all of the data to an external USB drive that I use for backups.

    My desktop then crashed and I replaced it with a new one.

    The interesting part is that when I installed iTunes on the new desktop it seems to have searched all connected drives (including the external USB drive) for *.ipa files and added the applications to the ITunes library. I normally don't pay much attention to the App listing and just do backups and updates.

    The only reason I even noticed it was while setting up my old iPad 2 for my wife and installing applications that she would need.

    Anyone else seen this happen? Any way to easily remove those I don't want?
