well i actually had to update on a different computer than i originally started on because i am not able to get to that computer in my current state. so i have my last sync on that computer but i have added SO much more since then and have not synced for fear of bricking. so yes i have some of my data but not all. i guess i'm out of luck though. just thought that maybe some of that almost whole gig of memory that is being used at this time could possibly contain my data. stupid me.
note to self and anyone else who wants to listen. don't play with your gadgits while on pain meds! sheesh
