I need help recovering a corrupted ipad backup. I was unable to restore my ipad from the backup when upgrading to ios 4.2. Does anyone know of a program that will allow me to decrypt the data from this 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.
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.
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.
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?
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?

I am planning to jailbreak my iPad. Before that I want to take a backup of my iPad videos, photos, mails etc on iTunes. What I want to know is whether It is possible to restore the data from iTunes. Please provide a detailed solution for restoring the data from iTunes.
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.
My ipad was working great , but two days ago , after syncing some apps , the synced apps wouldn't work ,the other apps that were installed before worked fine , after a couple tries all my apps were wiped , but the problem was gone , the next day , the same thing happened again , apps are not working , only the synced apps from itunes and other programs don't work , if i install the apps from the App store or Installous they all work out fine . Any fix? Thanks a lot.
My harddrive corrupted and my Pad backups are gone. Is there a software that could transfer everything ( Music, Photo, Playlist, PDF, iBook, Notes ... etc ) from iPad back to PC? There are software such as Cucusoft, 3herosoft, EmicSoft which only transfers Music, photo and playlist. I am looking for a complete transfer.
I am currently using iPad 1 and is not Jail Broken at all but still it displays a message : It is corrupted and a green screen appeared .I tried to fix it by restoring it through normal way and also via DFU mode but still the problem persists so please help me to solve this issue as this green screen is quite annoying for me and I don't want to see this screen anymore.
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.
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.
I just purchased Art Studio from the ITunes Store and it's a great app except it often puts a broad stroke of color always in the upper right corner of the pad. I can get rid of this, but it's truly annoying. What can I do? Is the app corrupted?

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, Photo.app crashes.Now what? Can I delete it somewhere else? On my Mac? Any app that does this?
I use Pandora Downloader to download music I hear while playing Pandora (hence the name, huh). Anyway, I SSH into my iPad using WinSCP and navigate to the folder where the downloaded music is stored (/private/var/mobile/Media/Pandora). I can copy the music to my computer with no issue but the tracks are corrupted. They either do not play at all or play with no audio. If I try to convert the files into another format (say .wav from .mp3), the programs I use to do this indicate the file is corrupted.
As a side note, I use PwnTunes to sync my music collection with my computer without iTunes. The root path to where the music resides on my iPad is /private/var/mobile/Media/iTunes_Control/Music. The Windows equivalent of this is Internal StorageiTunes Music. Duplicating a test file from the Pandora folder to the Music folder did not resolve the issue.
I'm having troubles in my organization to open files (word,) attached to email docs in my ipad and this happened after i update to the latest ios.
files do not open and they become corrupted and impossible to open.Â
Troubleshooting this issue i found out that if i open the document first on my Desktop with the microsoft word, and analysing with the inspection tool i could take the personal and xml info away from the doc and then resent it and then i could open it in the ipad.Â
