    Specs:
    Macbook Pro, 4GB RAM, 250GB HD
    all i can think is that the apps were either;
    not copied from the first external hard drive correctly,
    OR
    they were never copied, have a look around on the old external hard drive,
    sorry i couldn't help more.

    Disapearing Apps
    i have had a bit more problem now. i get a message saying "itunes library can not be saved the required disk can not be found" this is a very funny message seeing i was listening to music at the time of the error message. i do have some of hte apps backed up, so i copied them back in and there is now a mobile apps folder in my itunes folder that is not or was not on my old hard drive. i am so lost..i have no idea what is going on.
