Which would your prefer, Backing up to icloud or your computer, and why.?
Cloud, if your computer crashes you may lose any backups saved on it. There's nothing in my backup that Apple would be interested in
Computer. Just because it's quicker and my chosen method.
I should have made this a 2 part question. Can you backup to both icloud and computer, If you lose one you would have the other ?
I backed up to icloud this am then wanted to backup to computer, itunes showed it was backing up but when I went into the itunes backup folder it did not show the new backup. Does icloud backup need to be off on the ipad2 to do a computer backup.
OK seemed to work both ways.
Thank you both for your reply's and help.
Have a good day.
It will only backup automatically to either the cloud or itunes (depending on which you have selected) but you can manually force a backup to the other, to allow you to have a backup in both places.
I backup to the cloud, which the ipad does automatically when I connect to a power source, and once a month or so I manually backup to itunes.
