I have an iPod that I want to backup and then simply start over. I have copied all folders (even the hidden ones) to an external hard drive - using Windows Explorer. Then, using iTunes or another iPod manager, I want to wipe all of the songs (and images) off of it. The device does not hold other data such as calendar or contacts.
I plan to use the iPod for a few weeks, then I want to restore it to its original state. When it comes time to do that, can I simply delete all the folders off of the iPod and copy all of the stored folders back on to it?
That sounds logical to me, but I may be thinking in too simple terms! Is that going to be OK?? Thanks.
