Copying Files from your iPod Touch or iPhone to your Computer
The simplest way to copy the content of the selected folder on your iPod Touch or iPhone to your computer is to click on the "Copy to PC" or the "Copy to Mac" button on your TouchCopy control bar. This will copy the selected files and folders to a location on your PC as given by your TouchCopy options. By default, this is "iPod Content/Files" on your desktop.
Alternatively you can select files or folders you wish to copy from your iPod to your PC and click on "Copy Selection to PC" button. Then choose the location on your computer where you wish to save your files and click OK.
Also, double clicking on a file within TouchCopy will allow you to copy that file to your PC having selected the folder you wish to save that file to.
Browsing System Files - Or Not.
By default, TouchCopy will show you all your files and folders on your iPhone or iPod Touch media directory. You can browse, copy, add or delete any files or folders in this directory. Be careful not to delete any system files placed there by iTunes! TouchCopy will warn you if you try to do so.
You can use TouchCopy in another mode where all your own files and folders are stored in their own location, away from your media and system files. To switch to this mode, open TouchCopy options and select the "File browser" tab. Uncheck the box "Browse System Files".
