What a stupid mistake.

I just updated to 2.0 and in a rush I neglected to read the note stating that the update would delete all photos, music, etc. I do not have photos backed up on this computer, nor do I have notes or anything.

Of course all of it is gone, and every one of my hundreds of photos is left with no backup. I realize I should have backed them up, and I am feeling stupid at the moment.

I am not really asking for help, I just thought I would share with you that my start to 2.0 has not been great at all. Of course I am very disappointed as I have spent hours taking shots.

Anyways, at least I will have the new update soon.

Uhh, restore after this finishes. Assuming you did backup before you started or sometime recently. Then make a backup, and re-update.

You're right, sorry. I was a little bit anxious at the time of posting. I went back and checked and I will restore. Thanks.

How do you make a backup of notes and SMS messages?

iTunes creates a backup of everything, right down to the page you were viewing in Safari t the time of the backup.
So as long as we sync our iPhone before we update to 2.0 we are OK?
Thanks, Jim

Yes. Cause I did the same exact thing. But I've done it a thousand times before. The only reason I got upset was cause I had to waste another half-hour or so! >=[

I agree. Though I fixed it after a little retracing and such, it was a waste of time and it shouldn't have happened. I will now be sure to back everything up often.

The only problem to me now is that I lost all of my music. I will re-upload on my other computer.

Done 2 so far. You don't have to do anything except make sure you have enough room on the hard drive to make a total backup. On one of the computers, there wasn't enough room. It wanted 600 megs and said if I wanted to continue, personal information would be lost (pics, notes, contacts).

I stopped the installation and cleared some room. Everything went ok. The only thing it didn't transfer so far that I have noticed is settings for passcode.

I did the update over the weekend and haven't noticed anything missing.

Photos, notes, special rings; all where I left them.

I sync fairly often but I do so manually; did iTunes do a backup and reload during the update process?
