Hi All, Lately, I've been spending considerable time learning about my iPad, so I've been tweaking and making a lot of changes to the machine. For that reason, I've been backing it up daily. First thing, the length of time. I'm using iCloud, initially it said "Estimated Time Remaining about 6 minutes." Cool! As of now, it says "about 12 hours." This really annoys me: I'm in a hotel and if I want to go out, I'll want to lock the door, doing that automatically cuts off the electricity in the room. Bye bye backup, unless I leave the door unlocked when I'm out, since, as I'll mention further down, the iPad's supposed to be plugged in, i.e. charging, while it's backing up. Second, do backups overwrite previous ones? I see backups are currently taking up 367 MB of my storage. I went to Settings->General->Manage Storage, it says that when backing up, the iPad should be plugged in, locked, and connected to WiFi. OK, I'm plugged in, but my battery's at 100%, in this circumstance, why can I not disconnect the charger (although it's cool now) until it's necessary to plug it in again? So far as the iPad being locked, what difference does that make? I'm obviously not locked now, and it *is* backing up, so what's the deal with that? I searched other Backup posts before posting this and noticed several people were asking about the backup location. Would there be any reason to care about that except in the case of doing a restoration? Thanks for reading!
