Restore A Corrupted Encrypted Backup?
I have a problem restoring backups. My mom wanted me to upgrade her iPad 1 from iOS 4.2 to iOS 5. I'm running Windows 7 with the latest iTunes. So I plugged her iPad in and clicked update. iTunes promted me to update and I clicked it. Then it told me that it would backup the iPad and then wipe it and update it. So I accepted the prompt and it upgraded successfully to iOS 5. Now I wanted it to restore the backup so I selected the backup file, entered the password, and the restore completes half way then tells me that iTunes cannot restore the backup because the backup is corrupt or not compatible with the device.

I understand that there are apps to read from the backup file and extract stuff from it but they don't support encrypted files. I tried one program and it told me that the backup is complete and intact except for the fact that it is encrypted.

Recover Using Backup File?
At the moment my Ipad2 is fully synced with my PC and a backup recovery file is saved on the PC.My wife having seen my Ipad has bought herself a new one from the Apple store. If I connect her untouched Ipad to my PC and click Restore in the Summary tab, will Itunes download my backup file to her machine so I end up with two identical Ipads? The same question applies if I were to upgrade my Ipad with a 3G model, is this the way to duplicate all my settings, movies, files etc onto the new 3g ?If I simply sync the new machine with my PC, will this achieve the same effect or will Itunes back up a new machine with nothing on it to as my Itunes back up file?.I don't want to end up in a situation where I lose any data from my Itunes back up file.

Recover App Data From ITunes Backup?
When I upgraded from iPad 2 to the new iPad a few weeks back, I did a full backup of my iPad 2, then restored that backup to the new iPad. Recently however I noticed that an app, Daily Notes, is missing from the new iPad. It's also nowhere to be found in my ~/Documents/iTunes/Mobile Applications folder. Now, I know for a fact that Daily Notes was downloaded onto my iPad 2 using my GF's account, and the computer I used for backup is authorized with her iTunes account. So, I can't think of any reason why it shouldn't be on the new iPad.But now Daily Notes, and all its data, is gone. I can find no files on my hard disk named "Daily Notes" and no folder with the data. Inside the iTunes backup directory, all the files appear to have encrypted filenames. How do I get back all my data from that app? Even if I never use that app again, I still need to get the text files that were in it. There are some very important documents for my job that I had stored inside of Daily Notes.

RANT:This incident highlights the reason why I am very frustrated with the app-centric document model that Apple has forced upon us in iOS. My saved documents should always be kept protected and separate from any sort of DRM. The app-centric document storage model applies the same DRM that is intended to prevent apps from being pirated to documents that the user themselves has created (and thus should have every right to). I would never have lost this data if the system used files and folders that were separate from the app itself.

IPad 2 Recover The Note - Pasted Over? - Backup?
Last night I accidentally selected all, then pasted while in Notes. It pasted some long javascript bologna - not sure why that was in the clipboard, but it's irrelevant.I tried several arrow shaped buttons hoping for undo, but went back and forth to other docs. I googled undo and found it on the second keyboard page, however it didn't undo my paste, probably because of going into other docs I guess.My iPad is backed up to my Windows 7 PC and to iCloud (I think), however my notes are not synced between my iPhone and iPad for some reason.

Here is the question: How do I recover the note I pasted over? So I have a backup, what good is it? Can I get just that note back?

Unable To Recover Lost Data - Restore To Previous Backup
I have been syncing my iPad to my home PC for many months. I have loaded about 30 apps onto the device, with content, books and documents that I use often.Over the weekend, in order to charge it, I plugged it into my work laptop without thinking.

When I got back to my iPad many of the apps and their data had been deleted.I tried to Restore from a backup, but this only returned it to the state after the applications had been deleted.

It now appears that all my apps had been removed with their datasets. So I have lost all of the documents in GoodReader, Books, and the Office Applications. Even though I ask for it to be backed up at each sync.Once I got back to my home PC, I also tried to restore from a previous backup, but again that did not restore from a backup either.

The removed applications did get returned. But as mentioned, Pages, Keynote, Numbers have lost all of my documents, all of my games have been returned to their original state, and my business applications like iPass have been restored to factory settings.How do I restore my iPad to a backup where all of these things will be fixed?

Corrupted Pictures On It From Mac
Thousands of pictures over from the old PC and they look fine on the computer. When i sync to the iPad, though, many of the pictures come out corrupted, where you'll see half, a third or whatever, of the picture, and the rest is just white.

I've tried deleting the iPod photo cache and re-syncing, but the problem remains. Interestingly, when i told it to do just a very small set of pictures, that set was fine. But when i did a larger group that included that smaller group, many of the pictures were corrupted including some of the small group that looked fine when they were the only pictures synced.

What Caused New IPad To Have Corrupted Javascript
Is it possible for the new iPad to have corrupted Javascript? Or is there another app that will mess up the Javascript? My Safari runs fine when the Javascript is turned off, but when it's on it feels like I'm browsing over 56k again. Pages take forever to fully load and my debug console lights up with errors and notes. Is there a way to fix this issue? I'd really appreciate any help. I'm a new iPad owner and I love this device, except for this problem.

IPad RAM Failure - Corrupted RAM Module
For the past month or so, my iPad 1 has been lagging and running unbearably slowly, even after a clean restore. Then, yesterday, this happened: I'm thinking it's a corrupted RAM module. I never dropped it, exposed it to heat/liquids/moisture, etc. It's out of warranty by a long shot. What should I do? I don't know if I can hold on until early 2012 for the iPad 3.

Photo Database Corrupted - Browse The Pictures ?
I imported lots of pictures on my iPad via the connector kit. Now the database seems to be corrupted. Sometimes I will delete an image but it's the wrong one that gets deleted! Sometimes I browse the pictures and one will be very very low res, like the icon blown up. When I pinch to go back to the view of all the images that perticular image is gone! I'm on vacation right now for another month so I don't get acces to my Mac. I could try to sync with a PC but there's no iPhoto on a PC and I don't know where my images would go. I'm ****** becaue I lost some great images. Anybody add this problem? Anybody has a fix on PC because here in China there's no way I can get acces to a Mac.

Photo App Crashing Unable To Delete Corrupted Picture
so I saved a picture from a webpage that makes my "Saved Photos" crash when I open/unpinch it. Scrolling through the main "Photos" library also crashes, but first when the picture in question appears.I am able to flick through the "Photos" library images one by one and even view the trobled image (without corruption), but when trying to delete it, crashes.Now what? Can I delete it somewhere else? On my Mac? Any app that does this?

Rebuilt My Home PC But Kept My ITunes Library On A Seperate Drive From My OS - Backup Doesn't Backup?
Alright, so I had a problem where I rebuilt my home PC but kept my iTunes library on a seperate drive from my OS, so I still kept it. Then, when I'd finished rebuilding my machine, I installed iTunes and told it to use the same directory as it had previously for the library. Of course, it didn't do that, it created a whole new folder within that folder, and ignored all the previous library data. No big deal, I'll just wipe the old stuff and transfer the purchases from my iPad. Except that didn't work either, I got a message saying iTunes was waiting for something (can't remember the exact text off-hand) everytime I tried to transfer purchaes from my iPad.

Looked through the communities and found out that a few things can cause that problem (apparently voice memos were at fault for some people, improperly authorized machine, and a couple other items), but none of the fixes did anything for me. So I looked around for the alternative to restore my iTunes library on my machine so I look at the Apple support page for backing up your iPad [URL] and it says the backup function will save your apps, which is all I cared about since I didn't store my media in my iTunes library. Since I'd also been having a problem with an Ubisoft game and they recommended wiping my iPad to fix it, I made a backup and wiped the iPad then restored from a backup. Except not a single freaking one of my apps backed up despite having done it just minutes before wiping the iPad. All the default Apps and settings information were saved, but every single purchased app is gone.

What did I do wrong, or is Apple support flat out wrong, or (and god I hope not or I'll blow a gasket) did Apple decides "apps" really means "Apple apps"?

Ipad 2 - Photos Backup - Use An Online Backup Service Like Carbonite Or Sugarsynch
My problem is this: I am travelling throughout Asia with my ipad2 and using it to store photos. Recently my camera started playing up and the photos stored on the ipad are the only backup i have. I want to back them up. I have the camera kit so can connect USB and SD, however I was looking to use an online backup service like Carbonite or Sugarsynch. I've found out that they can only back up one photo at a time if at all.

How else can i back up the photos currently on my ipad? As additional information, i do have remote access through Teamviewer, to my laptop back in the US. I've tried to remote to thea laptop, thean remote back to the ipad in order to pull picture files off but couldn't seem to get it to work....thought it was a longshot anyway. So, how do youbackup photos without a computer to synch with?

Itunes Cannot Backup Because Backup Could Not Be Saved On The Computer?
Have been trying to back up my ipad on my pc so that i can upgrade the ipad os, but the above message keeps appearing. Aside from the fact that it takes ages to back up, it has been frustrating as i have tried deleting the back up file, removing all sleep/hibernate function on my pc ('cos it took so long), synching only the photos, and synching only the apps.

I do use apps like zinio and dropbox, which store files on the ipad, could these be the issues?

i have tried searching through the forum regarding the above error message but could not find any solution as most of the posts refer to slow backing up process.

Slow Backup/took Around 11 Minutes To Backup?
I posted on a previous thread about slow backups that my Ipad with around 48GB of apps, music, films etc, took around 11 minutes to backup.Then suddenly a couple of days ago after about 5 hours I cancelled the backup as it was only about half way through.i worked out what had changed and it seems a rather strange phenomena similar to the reported wifi problem that appears to respond to turning off the auto screen brightness.

I don't like to turn the volume up too high when listening to music through ear buds as I value my hearing.This means that the base is generally lacking, so I went into the iPod settings and set the equaliser for base boost. Suddenly, the backup was just too slow to bear.

Some time back I had a problem with slow backup with my iPhone and resolved the issue by deleting the backup in iTunes (go to preferences > devices > backup) and doing a brand new backup rather than incremental. I did this with the iPad backup and left the iPad connected to my Macbook Pro overnight. It took six hours to backup from scratch but tonight I've done a sync and backup and it's back to around ten minutes.

Lost App - Can I Recover It?

I would like to get it back on to my iPad even though I know it doesn't work because the iPad doesn't have a camera. Is it possible to restore the app. FYI, the app is still on my iPhone.

How Do Recover Data - Sync
I have a MacBook Pro with OS 10.6.5.I am running the most current iTunes available. I checked for iTunes updates before syncing my iPad. I have a 64 GB 3G+WiFi iPad. I backed up the iPad before downloading & updating to iOS 4. Now the iPad has frozen four times during the sync, and iTunes with it. I tried restoring the iPad from the back up, but it freezes EVERY time (lost count after 6 attempts).After searching fruitlessly for any solution in the forum, I finally removed the iOS update from the iPad Software updates folder, since it was the newest thing and likely the cause of the crashing, and tried restoring the iPad to original settings. That worked. However, when I tried restoring from back up, to get my apps etc. back, it froze AGAIN!!! I have been at this for about 6 hours and I'm frustrated with Apple, with iTunes, and with my iPad. I fear I have lost all my apps, their data, etc. Frankly I'm pretty peeved! Any help anyone can give, I'd very much appreciate. I plan on giving Apple an earful in the morning. I'm pretty dependent on my iPad for school (I'm a teacher). NOT happy right now. I can't use the iPad at all.Information:MacBook Pro Mac OS X (10.6.5)

Anyway Other Than Using ITunes To Recover Data?
I recently updated my iPad to the latest version using iTunes and suffered the problem which many people have reported around the iPad sticking in Recovery Mode after attempting to install the update. After some online research i read that you could bring the iPad back to life by updating it using another computer, if available. After a number of attempts on my PC failing to recover the iPad i took this advice and recovered via my laptop which was successful.

My problem, however, is that i had a lot of personal and sensitive data saved on my iPad within the Pages and My Journal apps. Prior to my first attempt to update my iPad i created a backup as prompted. Unfortunately any attempts to restore my iPad via my PC leads to a further lock up of the iPad by it going into Recovery Mode meaning i have to follow the process outlined above using my laptop.

Is there anyway other than using iTunes that i could locate and recover the information previously saved within these apps e.g. Folder location on 'My Computer' where back up data is saved?

How To Undelete / Recover Notes From It
A bunch of my documents in Notes were showing up in the list twice (this has been happening a lot), so I went and deleted the duplicates not realizing that both filenames were vanishing. Now several vital documents are gone representing a ton of work. I haven't synced the iPad, so those files don't exist anywhere else. I haven't written anything to the iPad, so I hope there's some chance those Notes are still there. I can't find an "undelete" function anywhere. Is there any chance I can recover these Notes?

Need To Recover An App 'folder' After Sync
I backed Up my ipad which is currently on software 5.1.The thing is I hadn't backed up for quite a while so I left it overnight backing up and syncing.Next morning I wake up to realize that apparently everything is there EXCEPT for only one of those "organizing folders" you make, which I had named "note and drawing apps".As you may assume I had Penultimate, Notability and Note Taker HD on it, along with a whole bunch of my study and medicine class notes, which I NEED! I also had Paper by fiftyThree and Sketchbook express with a lot of sketches, designs and drawings.Giving a flick over the other apps, all my other "folders" are there, and I don't miss any other app (Maybe some others were erased but I don't know, as there are some apps you never I dont remember them all...)

At first I thought maybe the folder was "desintegrated". But actually all of those apps are not in the ipad anymore...they were removed....Added to this, it seems they are not in my app section from itunes.Please help!.I know I can download the apps again without charge from the appstore but I want to recover my notes and sketches!!I don't know if I want to make a "restore from backup" kind of thing because I donpt know if it will be worse.
