Can you explain what you mean by "recovery mode"? Is the iPad displaying the cord and iTunes symbol that requires you to connect to iTunes? Does it stay on the winter apple logo? Is there any way you can take a picture of your iPad in its current state?
I ask this because I have not seen an iPad not respond to the reset option of holding the Home and sleep buttons until the Apple logo shows. The only time is usually because the iPad has hardware problems. In addition, we may have a misunderstanding of terms. So, we need a better description of what is going on with the iPad.
Welcome what sort of data is on the iPad that is not backed up?
essentially everything has not been backedup for one month. But major documents downloaded for my Phd are in three apps: Notability + Good notes + Penultimate...if i can ever recover just these i would be happy.
its perpetually at the itunes blue logo + chord. When i hold power + home together it brings up white apple logo then again goes back to itunes blue logo + chord.
You're right that the button presses usually don't help a unit stuck in recovery mode which this unit is. I was only doing the steps that I would attempt since the OP was concerned about losing data. Hey when it is hung up you gotta try all you know!
