i just formatted my computer a few weeks ago. This week, iTunes suggested I upgrade my iPhone OS to 4.0.2. Ok .. but just before I start the install, i get the following warning:

So i'm assuming that this means that if i continue (and update the OS) all my purchased (paid and/or free) apps will be gone. AND all my music and movies, etc. ?

I'm not sure how I tell iTunes about my music and movies :(

Any help or ideas?
