    Talking Accidentally Deleted Apps.. How to Recover?!

    Not sure how I did it.. I had 4 pages of App Store apps+games and had a few backups too..

    I backed up My Documents before reformatting my computer and not sure how but the other day I was in iTunes and I went to sync some apps and when I looked at my iPhone there's only about 20 apps left now.. I tried unsyncing then resyncing, I tried restoring a backup but there were no backups..

    Does anyone know where apps and/or backups are stored on my computer?..

    If not, is there a way to download all the apps that I have 'purchased' from my iTunes account? (I don't care if I have to do it this way. I have plenty of downloads this month..)

    Thanks

    apps are stored in the folder "mobile applications"

    or you can download all your apps again for free.

    Default Accidentally deleted factory apps

    But how do you recover a factory/standard app, like YouTube, which I accidentally deleted? Weirdly I can't find it at the app store or in my iTunes, do I have to do a full restore?

    Packlight, You can't delete YouTube. You must have just moved it over to another screen. Flick through the pages and you should find it. If you dont then a restore is in need Make sure you restore from backup so your don't loose everything.

    You can if your iPhones jailbroken.

    In which case full restore, or find the YouTube.app file somewhere and SSH it back onto your iPhone.

    There is a hidden iPhone page, I cant remember if its 9 or 10, you may have moved the apps the the end and thus "pushed them over the edge". Their still there, just invisible.

    Default Don't be afraid to "BUY" the app again.

    My 3g home button died this week. My wife had an identical 3g iPhone she was not using, so I did full recover to the new phone. Mostly worked. Lost some data and my most recently purchased apps (had not been backed up to iTunes). I am happliy downloading them again with the help of this apple support page: How to redownload purchased apps from the App Store.
    To recover purchased apps you must "BUY" the app again. You will not be charged as long as Apple has a history of you previously purchasing the app.
