    Backup

    Please correct me if i am wrong
    iPad is backed up up on my PC every time i do a sync so my iTunes collection, etc are safe in this regard
    Is my entire iTunes library - music, Apps, etc saved somewhere on the Apple servers ? I am thinking that if my data is lost how would i restore it ?
    Thanks for input

    They keep records of your purchases, but no actual files. You alone are responsible for backing up your own data. While you can download your apps again at no charge, the same does NOT apply to books, movies or videos.

    I suggest you save your purchases to an external hard drive for added protection. Files from iTunes are stored in the following (Windows 7 environment): Start, Music, iTunes, iTunes Media. Drag and drop to an external hard drive and you now have back-ups for all your music, books, videos, etc.
