    Default How do I move itunes to a new PC? not just the music but the backups and apps
    I recently purchased a new PC and want to move my Itunes to it. Maybe I shouldn't say move. I should say setup?
    I have a jail-broken Iphone 3GS and want to use it on the new PC. It's easy to just copy the music over and point itunes to the new folder but i am worried about my backups.

    Any information will be a great help

    Thanks

    Easiest way.. Install iTunes on your new pc, set that up as normal & all...

    Then on your old pc, click on start (or the windows logo) & enter

    %appdata%\Apple Computer\

    Copy the folder iTunes to the same place on your new pc using the same path.

    So the folder 'itunes' contains all of the data that I am concerned with? I can locate the Itunes folder and move it no problem. Thanks

    It contains software updates, update logs etc etc...

    Backups... Depends on what version of windows it's on & what version your moving it to as to where it is located & should be put. Let me know & I can point you in the right direction.

    So on your XP machine, the backups will be in

    %appdata%\Apple Computer\MobileSync\

    Copy the folder backup (This is where all backups are located)

    On the windows 7 machine, you'll want to enter

    %appdata%\Apple Computer\

    Create the folder MobileSync (Don't believe it'll exsist if you've not done any syncs yet), & then drop the Backup folder inside this.
