when i first bought my 32gb gen 2 touch i had everything synched through itunes. unfortunately for me that laptop stopped recognizing anything through usb, and died soon after. i had a copy of my podcasts with another program and had stopped synching audio files with itunes for some time so no library data was really lost because i never created a library. so now here's my problem- i want to backup what i have on my player through itunes (but not the audio files. i can put those back later if i need to). however if what i am reading is correct, not only can i not back up my apps but if i make any future purchases through the app store, i can't synch them to my player now because by activating the option to synch my apps through itunes, it will wipe out all of my other apps that i have on there now. am i looking at this situation correctly or did i miss something here?
