Hey all,

I need to restore my iPad and iPhone after a hard drive crash. The thing is, it was a fairly new build of Window7 Pro, so I hadn't backed anything up yet. Am I totally screwed? Or can my two i devices somehow be restored from what is currently on the devices?

I'm thinking I'm screwed, and need to first remember all the apps I paid for, and download them again. Is there a list of what I have bought somewhere on iTunes?

Any help would be great.

Yes, iTunes will know the apps you've purchased and when you download them will allow you to do so without charging you again.

Everything on your iPad and iPhone will remain intact, so when you reinstall Win 7 and iTunes just make sure you don't ask for restore. Signing onto your iTunes account sets up the necessary associations.

I'm sure you'll be okay.

Hal
