After having performed backups manually on both the iPad 2 and my iPhone 4 in the latest version of iTunes, I see that the date of "Last backed up to this computer: 10/5/2011 4:33 PM" remains. I have done this backup procedure many times since then and that date never changes. The backup procedure does seem to run, with indication of programs, etc., being recorded (looking at the progress bar at the top), but that date is disconcerting.
Additionally, when in iTunes, I click the "Restore Backup" button, I am given the choice of two backups, one not dated, and the other with a date in January 2012, which is still not right considering I just made one a few minutes ago.
Anyone have an idea of what gives on this? Thanks
