    Lost data

    I was advices by someone from whose office I bought some video messages to restore from backup, as a way to regain my videos which wiped off after I upgraded to ios 5. I just did that a few minutes ago but now all my notes and pictures taken after the last back up date have been wiped out. Any help on how to get them back?

    Unless you were syncing them with some service, no, they are gone.

    If you have iCloud and Photo Stream turned on, you will probably find your pictures there. If not, then they are gone.

    It's too bad your office buddy didn't emphasize that restoring from backup replaces everything on the iPad with older data, not just videos.

    Sorry.

    My ICloud is turned one, unfortunately photostream was off. But documents and data was on. How can I recover my current docs that were lost?
    Thanks for your response.

    Documents & Data turns on the ability of apps to save documents to iCloud. It depends on the app to actually do this. Unless the app that had your documents was iCloud capable, and you had this ability turned on in the app, no documents were saved.

    If the documents were saved by this method, all you need to do enable Documents & Data again (if needed) and turn it on in the parent app. The documents will automatically sync back to the app.

    At least this is how the iWorks apps and GoodReader work. Those are the only two app I have that use this iCloud feature.

    The only other place your documents could be was in the iCloud backup itself. Since you already restored from this (?), they obviously were not in that backup; and that is what caused the problem.

    I am sure itunes makes an automatic backup before it restores anything.if that is the case you can restore back to before your lost your photos?or am I totally wrong?

    important photos, documents and other important "stuff" should be backed up constantly by the user...I guess we all learn this the hard way once.
