In what locations in Win7 does iTunes save its data. Aside from music. I recently had to reformat my hard drive but before doing so backed up some files I thought would keep all the data from my phone.

I found files in C:users\"me"\appdata\roaming\apple computer and "me"\appdata\local\apple. I backed up the files in the roaming folder which included \mobilesync.

It didn't work.

Where else is this data kept.

HP Pavillion dv3xxx, Windows 7, Saving my pennies for a Mac... and food.

    Those ones are your iTunes preferences files, Dean. (dlls for plugins also live in the set in \roaming\).

    The default location for content and library files on a Windows 7 system is in the iTunes folder at C:\Users\<YourUserName>\My Music\iTunes .
