    i have formatted my pc and installed windows 7, and so lost all the apps in itunes, this is not a problem, the problem is now that i want to add more it says
    " are you sure you want to sync app? all existing app. and their data on ipod will be replaced with apps from this itunes library"

    this is defenitaly not an option because i have over 80 apps on my touch,and i won't lose them just to get 2 new ones is there a way to add the apps without syncing?

    Activate your computer with your iTunes account, then transfer purchases from your iPod. You won't lose anything.

    You could also right click on the device name on the left side and click transfer purchases.
