    Hi Everyone,

    I've been a bit of a tit, and accidently dropped and dragged some files in my /private/var folder around, and now my Touch is all confused, and practically bricked itself!

    Could some one please let me know what should be there, so I can move that I need to back, and sort it out, cheers!

    At the mo I have :

    cron
    db
    empty
    log
    logs
    mobile
    msgs
    root
    tmp
    vm

    Thanks in Advance

    Tom

    Restoring through iTunes is the easiest option.

    I managed to move enough files around be able to reformat it in iTunes, I couldnt do it before because I think I had moved the prefs folder somewhere random.

    Phew. Panic Over.

    Yeah mate, I was bricking it for about an hour, worst hour of my life, I thought, well there £200 down the bloody drain.

    So f*cking happy I got it sorted, but definatley wouldnt have been able to do it without the people on this site!!

    Want my advice? Don't move system folders around in future, lol. I can't see what possible reason you could have for doing it in the first place but never mind.
