    Good day!

    I suffered a hard drive failure two weeks ago and am now back up and running. I downloaded iTunes and my Carbonite back up retained my music files; however, none of my Apps purchases are in iTunes. I no longer have functionality in syncing my iPad or iPhone either.

    Did I miss a step or is this just "tough luck?"

    I guess there's no way to retain your data though. Lost my Angry Birds games. :(

    You can redownload them for the apps store, even that say buy you click on it and it will tell you that you already purchased that app before and if you want to reinstall it. You will be good.

    Not the game itself is missing just the data from the games I played.
