How can i view the backed up content on iClouds like the camera roll pics, since i have the pics there on iCloud and i want to save on the space on my iPad i want to delete it from my iPad if i can see it over iCloud.
Ever since I got my iPad 1, and more recently my iPad 3, I find I use my desktop computer less and less. My computer needs are very basic - email, web, basic document creation and management, occasional photo and video editing that iPhoto and iMovie handle fairly well, movies, etc. Over the air iOS and app updates and the ability to download podcasts, music and other media has essentially rendered my iMac a paperweight. Also, iCloud backups leave me with one less thing to worry about and my Apple TVs allow me to view my content on the bigscreen. My iMac is about 8 years old and is still running strong, however when it dies I don't think I will replace it. It's basically an iTunes media server - a cord that I would like to cut. However, this leaves the dilemma of how to store all of my media (movies, photos, music) and still be able to manage and play it. My 16gb iPad cannot store this data, nor could a 64gb for that matter. Ergo my search for a central data storage unit that will store all of my data that my iPad can access and manage. Here is my question:
I've done a lot of research on the Synology Diskstations as a NAS device as well as the iOS apps they offer to manage and play the various media. I've checked out several Youtube vidoes and have come to the conclusion that the Diskstation may serve my needs. My question is, however, once I set up the Diskstation with my desktop and transfer all my media to it, can I manage the Diskstation, download and upload photos, videos, music, etc., with my iPad only? Is this a possible scenario or do you absolutely need a desktop computer to manage the NAS?
I can† send and receive emails via my hotmail account on the iPad, but I can't view the content of the message.† When I try to open them I just get to and from and subject heading, but no content to read.† †
My MPB crashed and I had not backed it up with all my music apps and most important all my photos. I was able to get all my photos off my iPad with a app called Photo Transfer that worked great. I'm using the iCloud now to back up and sync my iPad. So at this point there is no need to plug my iPad into my computer to sync right but what about photos I have downloaded from the web, how are those added to my iPad, I'm assuming ill need to plug my iPad into the computer to transfer them? Now I have not re downloaded all my apps or videos and music in iTunes on my newly reformatted MPB, should I do that or no need because iCloud syncs all my apps so in other words if i had to do a restore on my iPad with iCloud all my stuff is there with out plugging it into my computer and sync from that?
I keep getting "Incomplete Backup" to iCloud on both my iPad and iPhone.
I've gone through all the recommended procedures, shut down auto backup on both, and restarted it on both, deleted the backups on my my iCloud account using iCloud on my PC, made sure the WiFi (8Mbit) was working and the iPhone and iPad were locked and plugged into the chargers.
I always get a message saying "There was a problem enabling iCould Backup".Why is that?I have 20GB data on my iPad, but I only get 5GB storage. Does that have anything to do with it? Will I be able to upload certain things to iCloud, but not others, for example music but not videos?
Icloud Has not been able to back up in four weeks. It just spins and stops. It is locked connected to wifi and plugged in. Can not seem to get it to do a successful backup. Seems to have started with upgraded software.
I shared an apple ID with a friend on my iPhone and my iPad and then she moved out and changed her password. I have some apps that I have purchased with her ID and then with my own ID, all out of my bank account, but I can't update the ones with her ID bc she changed the password. Can I utilize the iCloud somehow to delete the apps all together on my phone and iPad and then reinstall them?
Not clear on this but if I backup my iPad to iCloud can I also back it up to iTunes or is it just one or the other? Will my paid apps still be in iTunes if I back up to iCloud? Should or could I back up to both and would my apps still be able to be retrieved from both iTunes and iCloud? Haven't used iCloud yet and everything is backed up in iTunes.
When I get my new iPad, I'll need to get my content from my iPad 1 as discussed elsewhere here. It seems, from what I'm hearing, it's easier to just backup from iTunes.† Not everything is backed up via iCloud and people are having to get the rest of their "stuff" from iTunes.†
I don't need to have my content sync'd with other devices so maybe I should delete iCloud and stay with iTunes which means I'll have to hook up to iTunes on a regular basis to sync rather than just a plug-in.†
Plus, I don't know if iTunes has a limit for keeping content whereas iCloud has a limit and they charge for extra storage space.†
If someone takes a back up of the data like my Emails, Photos etc...via iCloud Backup in the iPad where does the back up data gets stored? how can I access it ? And where to access it from? Does it also takes a backup of the APPS as well?
