    I had no other choice but to re-install the PC since it crashed, now i re-installed everything i could, but itunes wanted to wipe the iphone....i accepted and now i lost all my savegames and data. i had no other choice to accept, because else it didnt want to sync anymore.itunes said i couldnt sync on more then one PC, even if its the very same PC but re-installed. That sucks so really bad it makes me want to kill the software creator of itunes.

    But i manually created a backup of the current backup.
    Its aload of files without extension, with names like these:
    430b9f3d425ab5821e9a19c6fdb6769863a0a3a3.

    How can i use these files to recover my iphone?

    I really, really could use some help....
    Thanks..

    Well, I dont think that file will help at all, correct me if im wrong. Please from now on manually sync music and video. So when you connect the iphone to a different computer, it will sync the music and video, but not the apps.

    You had to wipe the iphone becuase you can only sync apps and other things from 1 itunes. And since you re installed windows. Its a different itunes.

    Or just authorize the computer on itunes before you plug it in, or unplug it before its too late.
