How do you sync your apps from your iphone to a new PC?


When syncing you receive a warning that you are about to remove all content from your iphone (device)!!! I don't/can't have this happen!! I have the music and calenders etc on iCloud but the Apps don't get stored there (as far as I'm aware).


Should I de-register the old PC first? Will that then signal iTunes that this is OK to syc the apps with the new??



iPhone 4S, Windows 7

    You really need to copy everything from your old computer, or your backup copy of your old computer, to your new one.


    The iphone is not a backup/storage device

    I understand it's not a storage device. Can I just copy over the apps from the old PC? the new PC is exactly new as it already has all my music on their as it downloads all purchases. If I was to copy the old to the new completely i'll get double ups of all my music 6,770 odd tracks!!

    I'd like to avoid this!!!
