Result:difference between back up and restore backup in ipad

Hi, Due to having trouble (suspected software) with my home button, I got a full reset at the genius bar. Because I knew that was likely, I took a full backup on my PC via iTunes.  iTunes said that doing so would take a complete copy of my ipad. On bringing my ipad back from the ...|full-backup-factory-reset-restore

Ive read the ipad book and a few Apple tech notes on this but am still not 100% clear on the differences. It seems we can sync, backup and transfer our ipad data to our computers.Frankly, I dont understand why there isnt just one process that backs up your ipad to your computer so there is a mirror...|difference-backup-sync-transfer-ipad

Had to get a new ipad due to the other one breaking. The old ipad had iOS 6 with everything backed up to iCloud. Got a new ipad today and tried to setup and get my restore from iCloud. It said it could not find my backup. After reading apple support it said my software versions must match. Now that I have updated the software on my new ipad how do I get my restore from my backup on iCloud? Thanks!...|restore-backup-updating-device-latest-version-ios-match-backup-software.

I'm trying to back up a new ipad but it keeps saying that could not back up because the backup was corrupt or not compatible with the ipad. It says to delete back up and then try again. I went into preferences and there is no back up there to delete. Advice please thank you...|backup-ipad-backup-corrupt-compatible-ipad-delete-backup-ipad-checked

My ipad has a number of documents, including pdf, xls, doc, ppt files.  Some are associated with Documents to Go - Premium, which froze on the device attempting to download an update and had to be deleted (which also deleted the files that only were on the ipad and associated witht the app).  How do I restore only that app and/or the related files from the iCloud.  Ans I've found so far were not clear/specific enough or seemed to indicate the entire ipad had to be restored.  iOS 5.1.1...|restore-documentfile-ipad-icloud-backup-restoring-device-icloud-backup

An audio memo recorded with "Audio Memo Free" was accidently deleted on an ipad.  iCloud backups are enabled, and I am thinking that if she restores to a previous version of the iCloud backup, she might be able to get the audio memo back.  Do you think this will work? An Apple Store employee said that there was no way to get the audio memo back, but maybe he didn't think of restoring to an older iCloud backup. Thanks!...|restore-older-ipad-backup-restore-lost-audio-memo-recorded-audio

Hello, I recently wanted to restore my iOS 5.1.1, So I backed up on itunes and then restored to fresh 5.1.1 and afterwards went to "restore from backup" and it did its thing taking roughly 10 minutes, but when it came back to the main screen I found that my ipad had nothing on it different from the fresh restore of 5.1.1. No pictures, videos, calendar stuff.. NOTHING. Anyone else have this problem or having any suggestions? I really need what was on there....|restore-backup
