My old laptop crashed and I just got a new macbook air.    My most current calendar and address book information is on my iTouch.    Is there anyway to transfer that information to the new macbook?    I'm afraid that if I sync the iTouch that it will erase my contacts and calendar because there is nothing on the computer.....

Help!

No backup on an external disk?

 

How did you sync, via USB and iTunes, or via iCloud "through the air"?

    I'm goign to sync via iTunes but heard numerous warnings that it will erase my calendar.    I do have an external back up but it isn't current for my calendar.

    Okay, it should work as syncing means "merging" unless you tell iTunes to overwrite the content of the iPhone with whatever is on the Mac.

     

    So, pay attention for these two things:

    - Have at least one entry in each Contacts and Calendar on the Mac before syncing.

    - With the Touch connected and selected but not sync'ing, yet, go on the Info tab and make sure that under Advanced none of the "Replace..." options are checked.
