Non-Total iPhone Backup

> Music doesn't need backing up becauseÖ

I was not correcting the claim that iSync backed up what needs backing up, but that it backs up everything, which it does not. Whether a selective backup programís idea of what ought to be backed up and restored, matches a given userís needs, is a question with a long and interesting history, but Iím afraid that much of my evidence is covered by non-disclosure agreements.

The sporadic reports I mentioned (but havenít confirmed independently) were not about data in the cache, but in the parts of the file structure which are documented as being backed up. As I said, I have not confirmed these reports, but Iím surprised that you know that the app is buggy.
