I have an iPad 2 and it's been a long time since I did a sync and i don't have the computer any more.


I want to upgrade to iOS5, I downloaded iTunes onto a PC and plugged in the ipad but it said it was going to erase everything.


I don't care about music and videos (I don't have any), but I MUST PRESERVE my photos and contacts and notes and bookmarks and applications.


What must I do please? I serached on goole and it suggested third party programs, but I would prefer not to buy some dogy progams just to upgrade my ipad.


Thank you very much, William
