Cool. I'm scared to try it, but I have a second plan in the works* so maybe I will
(Looks to be just one piece of the process though.)
For extra fun, this is happening in the same week that my laptop died and someone just totaled my car. Which comes with a bonus: ambulance chasers calling my iPhone every 5 minutes, having harvested my number from the police report. Sa-weet!
* I'm taking screenshots of certain key info since my last (good) sync, and will email them to myself. Then I can restore from the old backup, and pick up the pieces at my leisure, if other options fail.
