I resetup my Windows 7 computer so had to also resetup iTunes. I got my iPhone synced (it deleted apps that I had purchased since my last sync but I didn't lose anything major). I don't want this to happen to my iPad, though. Is there any way around this? I transferred purchases from my iPad but when I choose to sync my apps in iTunes it says everything will be erased and replaced with the new library (the same as what happened with my iPhone). Since I transferred the purchases already will there be any problem with this or will it still delete some potentially important things? Or is there some other way to back up my iPad without iTunes. I know there are other programs that can manage media libraries but it seems like none of them handle apps and user files. FYI my iPad is jailbroken. Will that make any difference? Will I lose my apps from Cydia if I chose to sync to iTunes?
