How do I sync with a replacement laptop without loosing app !!!data!!!

I had to replace my old (broken) laptop that I used to sync my iPad with a new laptop. Since then I do not dare to sync my apps in fear of loosing the app data. I know that I can get the apps back anytime, but the data associated with the apps I can not afford to loose.
The sync problem effectively prohibits me from upgrading to ios5 as well.
And yes, I have transferred all purchases to the new laptop, both laptop and iPad have all app updates and therefore should be at same versions.
Still, when activating app sync I get the message that everything will be erased, which I just can not afford.
I read across a lot of answers in the communities to this topic, but none states that I will not loose my data...
Any tip on how I can sync without loosing my data?

Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store
For items you cannot get the above way use a third-party utility such as Phone to PC

  • How do you sync w/ a new computer without loosing game data etc.?

    I recently switched from a Windows computer to a Macbook Air, and then.. i tried to sync my iPad with iTunes, and this is what it says:
    I like the order my apps are in on my iPad, and I don't want to risk loosing any of the apps data, all my music, all my videos, and all my photos (But i have my photos saved on a USB drive)
    I already transfered my purchases with File > transfer purchases
    But, is that enough to verify that I won't loose the order of my apps on my device or loose the data?
    Please respond... thx

    I am sorry if I wasn't clear in my earlier post.  I already knew how to transfer purchases.  I had movies that wasn't originally from iTunes on my new computer that I wanted to transfer to my iPad, but then this message popped up:
    It wouldn't transfer with "Transfer purchases".
    I transfered my apps, music, etc. to the new computer already. But I am afraid that I will loose my game data...  I also did home sharing. The iPad is synced with my old computer's library.  Is transfering purchases from the iPad to iTunes enough to ensure me that I won't loose my game data?
    Thank you for responding...

    iTunes: How to move [or copy] your music [library] to a new computer [or another drive] - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4527
    Quick answer if you use iTunes' default preferences settings:  Copy the entire iTunes folder (and in doing so all its subfolders and files) intact to the other drive.  Open iTunes and immediately hold down the Option (alt) key (shift on Windows), then guide it to the new location of the library.

  • How can i reformat my external hard drive without loosing any data?

    how can i reformat my external hard drive without loosing any data?

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
    It's impossible to format a hard drive without losing the data. One thing you can do before formatting is to copy the files from the external drive to your internal drive, and then, format the external drive. After formatting, copy the files to the external drive again, and everything will be as before formatting it

  • Is it possible i can sync my old ipod touch with my new laptop even tho it used to be synced with my old computer without loosing all my music?

    - Transfer iTunes purchases to the new computer:
    iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to a computer
    - For other music you will need a third-party program like on of those discussed here:
    Copy music from Ipod to new computer...: Apple Support Communities
    - Then connect the iPod to the computer and make a backup by right clicking on the iPod under Devices in iTune and select Back Up
    - Restore the iPod from that backup.

    Hi altagumasi,
    The pinhole reset button on the back panel of the device will reset user and network settings. It will not delete your data. Press the reset button for 15 seconds and the device should reboot. After the reboot, you will go through the initial configuration process.

  • My laptop recently broke and I had to buy a new one. How do I sync my iphone 4 with the new laptop without losing all data?

    Hi there,
    Well the title says it all really.
    I have to sync my iphone 4 with my new laptop as the old one broke. How do I do this without losing all my pictures, music, contacts & things purchased form the itunes store?
    It seems really silly that everything gets wiped off the phone when using a different laptop. This problem must happen quite often as I am sure I am not the only person who has had a pc that has broken.
    I hope you someone can help. All the stuff on my phone is important to me.
    Many thanks

    Please search the forums. This has been covered here extensively.

  • How do I sync with a new computer without losing everything?

    I no longer have access to the computer I originally synced my iPhone with.  I want to sync it with a new computer and back everything up without losing anything.  How do I do that?  Please help!

    Using the information below you can transfer content to your new computer.  Thiis will at least update the content to have what is on your phone but you will still be syncing with a new iTunes library.  It will replace your content but hopefully you can make the replaced content match your existing content.
    Make a backup of your computer always.  This is the digital age and it is all too easy to lose music and photos in an instant.
    Some of the information below has subsequently appeared in a document by turingtest2: Recovering your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device - https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-3991
    Your i-device was not designed for unique storage of your media. It is not a backup device and media transfer was planned with you maintaining a master copy of your media on a computer which is itself properly backed up against loss. Syncing is one way, computer to device, updating the device content to the content on the computer, not updating or restoring content on a computer. The exception is iTunes Store purchases which can be transferred to a computer.
    iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iOS device or iPod to a computer - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1848 - only purchases from iTunes Store
    For transferring other items from an i-device to a computer you will have to use third party commercial software. Examples (check the web for others; this is not an exhaustive listing, nor do I have any idea if they are any good):

  • How to sync in new laptop without loosing existing data in ipad 2?

    Hi I just got new laptop and after connecting my existing ipad 2, it is hsowing message taht old library will get erased, if I countine. I do not want to loose all earlier data. How do I do ?

    Copy from this discussion:
    https://discussions.apple.com/message/11527071#11527071
    1) Without connecting your iPad to your laptop, start iTunes. Click on Edit. Click on Preferences. Click on Devices. Check the box next to "Prevent your iPod etc. from automatically syncing." Click OK.
    2) Now connect your iPad to your laptop and start iTunes.
    3) When iTunes starts, right click on your iPad under Devices in the left column. Select Transfer purchases etc.
    4) After it finishes transferring all your apps to your new laptop, right click on your iPad and select Backup your iPad.
    5) After it finishes backing up your iPad, right click on your iPad and select Restore etc.
    6) After it finishes restoring, left click on your iPad , then click on the Apps tab on top, and check the box next to Sync Apps, then click on Apply below.
    If everything on your iPad looks good after the sync, go back and click on Edit / Preferences / Devices and UN-check the box next to Prevent your iPod etc. The only other thing you may want to check is if your contacts, bookmarks, etc. are syncing correctly now. If not, go to the Info tab after connecting and make sure you indicate which features you want to sync with what sources.
    That should do it.

  • How do you sync with a new computer, without wiping the device?

    I recently got an iphone. I installed the software to sync at work. I bought a few apps. Now looking back that was a mistake to install it there. How can I carry over to sync with a newly installed itunes on my PC (Vista) laptop?
    I'm sure others have to deal with this when they even get a new PC at home, or where ever.
    Thanks in advance.
    Peter

    Hey Peter,
    I'm no pro, but when we recently synced my wifes' new iPhone at home, we were given an option to either let the phone override the existing computer information or vice-versa (In iTunes, select your iPhone>info tab. advanced). Would it be possible to set your iPhone to override your computer, thus loading everything onto your computer from the iPhone?
    Good Luck!
