Screen Alert : This IPhone Hasn't Been Backed Up In 2 Weeks
Apr 27, 2012
Screen alert, "This iPhone hasn't been backed up in 2 weeks. Backups happen when this iPhone is plugged in, locked, and connected to Wi-Fi." doesn't go away after tapping on "OK" button. Can't even switch iPad off.
My dad has an IPad 3 and he's telling me that his iPad won't turn on and is giving him this message: iPad has not been backed up for x number of weeks. He can't access any of the icons and he is essentially stuck.
Whenever I create an event in my calendar, I choose "none" for the alert, but then the 10 minute alert always pops back on. I don't want an alert for some of my events, so why does the 10 minute alert keep coming back?
I just got my ipad a few days ago. I have one problem so far. I thought that when an email was received, it would show it on top of the mail icon on the home screen just after it came. I don't find new email until I actually open mail. When I then exit mail it shows I have new mail on the home screen.
i would like to have some advice from current ipad owners. i'm going on a 4 weeks vacation and i'm a in a dilema. Should i take the ipad or my macbook on the trip. Basically all i'll need my computer during my trip will be for web browsing, skype, email, facebook(Upload some pics) and save my pics on the ipad and also show off pictures from back home to family and friends there (i.e i have to upload some pictures on my ipad before leaving). I'm also planning to bring an external hard drive to save pictures taken while i'm on holidays just in case i can't upload all of them on the ipad because of its limited harddrive space.
i've had my ipad 3g 65gb for over 2 weeks, and have been using it pretty much as a book reader/normal use.battery's at 90%, and i'm having dinner After dinner and a shower (around 1.5hrs), the ipad just won't on! Tried pluggin it into both the computer, charging it with the AC adapter, pressing and holding on to every possible button combination, but it just won't on!
1) In Week mode - Right arrow isn't functional. 2) In Week mode - In order to move to next week, the relevant section doesn't respond to touch. However, if the I click/touch the 3rd week, the page automatically flips to the 2nd week. For e.g. If the current view is July 11-17, and I need to flip to July 18-24, the app doesn't respond to a touch/click on July 18-24 section. However, if I touch/click July 25-31, the page automatically flips to week of July 18-24. The same problem doesn't exist for past weeks. It's always for the subsequent week.
Perhaps it's because my iPhone is jailbroken, but I find myself rebooting every couple of weeks. My iPad on the other hand seems rock solid. I think I've rebooted once since buying it on launch day. I ran the iInfo app today and saw 38 days uptime. Pretty stable if you ask me - 38 days in and no performance flakiness whatsoever.
In less than 2 weeks, I was obliged to execute more than 5 complete restore. Each time, upon iPad switch On (not form sleep mode), I was prompted to connect it to iTunes (just like the first day)... and then iTunes highlights that iPad cannot be read and must be restored. Please note, that it is not each time I turn it On that the problem occurs; but each time it occurs, it is during the boot and not at the middle of any particular usage of the iPad. Compared to what I could read in the forum, I did not encounter any particular crash when running applications.
The simplest way to tranfer everything from one ipad, to another one.I am still unsure of what the ipad backup does backup and what it does not. I know it doesn't backup the music files on the ipad/ipod/iphone, but what about files within an app? Do these get backed up?
I originally was on the fence, but after reading and seeing reviews and coverage the last 12 hours, I've been sold on the iPad. Checking out the apps that will come out really did it for me as well. Now, I had already reserved the 16gb wifi for Saturday at my local Apple Store..Question is, should I get it Saturday or should I just pre-order the 32gb and wait to get it in two weeks? I do plan on syncing some photos, but no music since I have my ipod for that and no movies really. Just apps. I would like to have extra space to have because I am going to be getting the camera kit for those times while on vacation and I need it, but they won't be on there long term.
When I first got my iPad in early July, I noticed a dead pixel on it. It wasn't that noticable to me, so I didn't do anything about it. However, the other night, I decided to do a dead pixel test on my iPad, and noticed a total of six dead pixels. Made a Genius appointment, backed up my iPad, etc and went to the meeting. He gave me a refurb iPad and restored my old one. However, when I backed up my old iPad, I guess it must have gone over my head that it would only back up contacts and the like, because when I went to go restore the new iPad, it didn't restore music, videos, pictures or apps. At the time, that was fine, I could just redownload everything.Wrong! When I went to go everything from the app store and the iTunes store, it prompted me to verify my account info (secruity key on the credit card I used). I entered it, and it said it was wrong. It's not wrong; I tried entering it for another 5 minutes. After that, I tried EVERY card I own, and nothing worked
I got my iPad2 in early April and until today I haven't consciously backed it up (by right-clicking it in the iTunes devices and selecting "backup"). Although I got messages stating that it was backing up, I really can't confirm it as I have no idea where those files were backed up to on my Mac.I went to my user Library and into Application Support > MobileSync > Backup and there was a folder with this name:
and it contained some 5,000 files, all of them with similarly cryptic names.I can only assume that these are the data files but I have no idea what any of them are.Am I correct in this assumption? How can I find a particular file among all these? Say, one of my epub books?
I am a new ipad user so perhaps that may be the issue but I have tried to research the message I keep receiving when I try to back up my ipad to the icloud.
The message states " This ipad cannot be backed up because there is not enough icloud storage available."
It says at the bottom display 4.9 GB available of 5.0GB on icloud. When I go to Manage Storage and there is a list of all apps, etc listed I have turned almost all of them off and still I cannot back up to the icloud.
The warning reads, the media on this ipad cannot be backed up because there is not enough free space on this computer to hold all the backed up files (6.82 GB required, 32.5 MB available). The obvious answer is to cut down on the files that I'm trying to sync. How do I do that? Do I just delete some of the apps?
I've had to buy a new laptop and now want to sync my iPad with it. I've followed some previous instructions on backing up with iTunes. The next step is to sync it which will wipe the iPad and to restore from backup. I'm very nervous about doing this - how do I know that the backup backed up my photographs - it didn't seem to take that long. Foolishly I don't have the photographs stored anywhere else and I don't want to lose them.
i backed up an iPad 2 to the cloud. i sold the iPad. i bought another 2 and want to restore from the cloud all the stuff i backed up but can't figure out how to do it. i can't find anything in iCloud preferences that gives me a restore option?????
I have an iPad 3 (WiFi model only) running iOS v6.x (not sure of exact version). Anyhow, after two weeks of being not being backed up to iCloud and the iPad being left on for several days (but dark in sleep mode), when I press the power/sleep button, the screen lights up and responds with an interactive message box stating, "This iPad has not been backed up in 2 weeks. Backups happen when this iPad is plugged in, locked, and connected to Wi-Fi". Ok, I've seen this message before many times, but now when I try to answer the message box by tapping on the 'OK' button inside the box, the box will not acccept my gesture and the iPad continues to display the same box message. I've tried it multiple times. It's like the iPad is frozen in this message box. It happens both when I am plugged in to power and when I am not. Plugging in to power seems to get me back to the home screen with the message box displayed in front of it.
I thought perhaps the problem would clear if I simply rebooted. I held the power/sleep button down and the box at the top of the screen stating, "Slide To Power Off' appeared. It will not let me enter a gesture to slide the arrow to the right. The box with the previous message is still displayed along with the 'Slide To Power Off' box and I still can't tap on the 'OK' button and have it recognized. In addition to the 'Slide To Power Off' and the "This iPad has not been backed up..." boxes, a 'Cancel' box is displayed at the bottom of the screen, but again. when I tap on it, my gesture is not recognized. It's like all gestures have been disabled.
Since the iPad does not have a removable battery, I, of course, can't pull it and re-insert it to force a re-boot.
I have lots of photos in my photo app on my iPad and I back up newly purchased apps by going into iTunes. A friend of mine told me that the photos that i have on the iPad are not backed up in iTunes when I sync and backup. Is that true, that my photos are not backed up and only the apps are. If so how can I preserve and baç« up the photos into iTunes if I had to restore everything due to a new, stolen, or lost iPad? I really don't understand the process and can anyone seriously advise how to do it.
I had a syncing problem with my ipad 1 running ios 5.01 so I backed up about 500 mb of photos on my ipad camera roll on icloud before restoring to 5.1.1. I followed all the instructions about turning on icloud on the Apple site but for some reason the images are not being downloaded to my mac, pc, or ipad.
The total storage section in the icloud settings in ipad settings shows 600 mb is used. I turned on camera roll and photo stream on but no dice. I checked the directories where icloud is supposed to download but they are empty. Can I browse the contents of icloud using Aperture?
Pad which has never been backed up has entered recovery mode. Is the data (pictures, etc.) gone? Are the apps gone?
Sales manager brought over her iPad and it shows the dead battery icon and then the "connect to iTunes" iconography.Â I asked the sales manager which computer she uses to sync with the iPad, and she said, blankly, "sync?Â What's that?"Â
I connected the iPad to her iMac, and it launches iTunes and says that it has detected an iPad in Recovery mode.Â The wording of the message, and this KB article If you can't update or restore your iOS device, seem pretty clear that it is going to delete all of her material off of the device.Â Is this true?Â Is there any way that her stuff is not gone?
