How to fix some mysterious problems.

While I was restoring my phone after I updated to 4.2.1, my computer crashed. I kept having issues after that restoring my phone, it was my computers fault not the phone. Anyway, took me several hours but I eventually copied my backup from the desktop and restored using that. I used the RC5 GP Greenposi0n and it worked great. I didn't have any music or apps installed on my phone yet though cause I was on my laptop. I went over to my desktop to sync my music and apps and I found 6gigs of "other" space being used up. I have no idea what this would be because I did a full restore from my JBen 4.1 to 4.2.1.

I've heard two things it could possibly be - something left over from ROCK (deleting RYS folder) but I don't have that folder and I don't think I had ROCK onthis phone. The other was to delete /private/var/mobile/Media/iTunes_Control/Music (all folders and sub folders). I tried that but still have a lot of space taken up.

No ideas at this point. Anyone help?

Was your backup from 4.1?

Actually, I think it's my apps. My apps won't sync to the phone through iTunes. It keeps saying it can't move iBooks. But none of my apps will sync at all. But the size of the space seems to be about the size of all the apps I had. Anyone know a way around this?
