    If you go to Settings>General>Usage it will show you how much storage you have used and how much remains available. You will be shown a complete list of everything currently taking up space in your storage memory.

    My storage said I have 5 gb total storage and I only have 31.5 mb available storage. This is really what makes me confuse coz how come it only said 5gb if I have 64 gb memory?

    Go to settings - general - about. When you get there hold the lock button and press the home button then release. You will hear a sound. That is a screen shot being taken. Then post it here

    "Totallylegit" is right about how to take a screenshot. When you go to "settings/general/about", what are the two numbers that you see at the top of the screen?

    I think that the OP may be confusing iCloud storage with the built in storage on the iPad,especially when she mentions 5GB available storage.
    Check out this screenshot.

    You should see two numbers above that, at the very top of that page, right under the word "storage"
    Please tell me what toes numbers are and whether the number is followed by GB or MB.

    Ok guys I guess I already knew it. You are right. It's the ICloud storage is almost full. So if that's the case should I buy more storage? Is back up really needed?
