G'day, Following a catastrophic crash in Itunes (don't know if it was Vista, the update to Ipod and Itunes software, or all of the above) I've managed to recover my apps but not contacts. I am aware that as far as non-app information goes, the Ipod is basically a glorified thumb drive, but I'd love push contacts back and forth between my IPT & different desktops so that I have multiple back up options. My IPT is my digital diary and address book these days so that info is more important that the apps. I have disabled the automatic sync setting so I can merge the data with my computer data - but will this work everytime or will Itunes WIPE the IPT next time one of the other crashes and I have to do a restore? Thanks Willow Australia.
