    Hi all! I'm new to the forum - first post here - I desperately need your help.

    Recently due to a monumental tits up, I needed to restore my laptop to factory settings, so after a clean install (of Windows XP) I have come across a problem.

    I've installed the latest version of iTunes, anyway, I can't sync my iPhone to the Laptop. I want to copy what's on my Iphone on to my laptop (I can sign in or w/e if it's necessary to clarify the purchased apps are indeed mine) but it won't let me.

    I try clicking sync, but then I get warned that it will wipe the phone, and sync it to my library (in which I have 0 apps after the restore) which would mean losing them all, and redownloading gigabytes of apps.

    How can I get the apps off my Iphone back on to my laptop and into Itunes?

    If you need any more info, just let me know.

    EDIT: I realise how awful the title is now, could a kind mod please rename it

    no backup?

    Right click on the phone and choose transfer purchases
