    Hi, all.

    I hope you're well. Please excuse me if this has been covered before, but I am running out of space on my 16GB iPad Mini, and need to transfer Pages documents to the PC. Doing it one at a time is really, really tedious.

    Is there a way to speed it up?

    Thanks,

    Casey

    Hi Casey,

    I am no expert but I have so many iWork's pres, spreadsheets and docs but I just back them up to the cloud and the Dropbox, that way they are stored mostly, for free and it's a simple task to retrieve them. Or let you or anybody else you give permission too retrieve them on a PC. My machine is a 64gb version but I still try to keep it as clean as possible. I might be barking up the wrong tree here but I'm sure someone (TP) will be along to help you shortly.

    Regards

    Sorry. I don't have a solution. You can transfer them one at at time from the iPad, or download them one at a time from iCloud.com. The second is a bit more convenient, but only works if you use the iCloud Documents and Data (or iCloud Drive) feature with Pages.

    I tried playing with the Workflow app, but could find no way to select multiple file

    Now if you had a Mac instead of a PC, the new iCloud Drive feature shows in the Finder (file manager), so they could easily be selected and copied to a different, local, folder. There might be a similar feature for iCloud drive on Windows, but I haven't heard of it.
