I took my older HD out and installed a newer larger drive for my boot. I couldn't get TM to do a restore till I pulled the install disks out and put an os on the disk. Then I restored from TM and all was good. But I notice when launching several things that they are acting like first time launches.. weird. Whatever...pushes on...
But today on trying to sync the iPad and iPhone I have problems. Apparently at some point I decided to not back up the Music folder since my drive was at capacity.... but I'm getting head of myself.
A few months ago I was having problems launching iTunes.. so I rebuilt the library. I renamed it iTunes1 and I had problems when launching iTunes under the new library... problems with the iPad and iPhone not being recognized. Warnings that if I synced it would wipe the devices and restore from the computer. I don't remember what I did exactly to work it out..The end result is now that I am having this problem again... the computer thinks that I have the iPad authorized on 3 different computers... when in reality it's just this one Mac. That was problem #1. Problem #2 is the phone. I forged forward with the iPad and synced it anyways... it's just kids games and such on that device. But the phone is a different issue... I am leery of wiping and restoring the phone. I look in the new TM restored MobileSync folder and see back ups in two main folders.. with dates inside from 11/12012 and dates from today. That's it.

I'll play guinea pig. Since I couldn't get iTunes to recognize my original library, I created a new library with all my music from the previous library. The previous library still exists, so I'll sync my iPhone to that library first. I'll then do the new sync to the new library. If things get fubared, I'll still have a fallback.
