    Total non techie reply, but I have all my music (from itunes) and photos backed up onto an external hard drive, would that not be an easy way to do it?

    I had to do something similar a while back after reinstalling windows.
    I'm not at a pc so can't see the exact steps but it was pretty simple.

    There is an option in iTunes somewhere to make a back up of iTunes. Back it up to an external drive. Then once you have reinstalled windows download iTunes again use the restore option to restore everything.
    Once it is restored you phone should work as normal in it.
