    Okay so recently iTunes decided to delete EVERYTHING from my library. I tried the backup library, but it didn't work. So I had to find a program that would put all the songs back onto my computer (yes I know they should still be there but if I re-imported they wouldnt have the play count).
    So anyways, I want to know if there is a way to backup the applications on my iPod since all the saved games and such will get deleted if I sync my iPod.

    I think I might have found the folders. They don't have any particular name and I dont know if they contain any saved games or such.

    the itunes_control folder
    should be on var/mobile/

    they'll all have 4letter names, but if u inport them into itunes, it'll put all the info.

    I've been able to locate some folders relating to the apps but I have no idea how I would get the settings out of there.
