    I thought once you've synced you iPad with iTunes on my laptop that it was automatically backed up? Where do I go to figure that out ? Why would SOME parts be backed up only? And other people have their iPad fully backed up. I would love to know the technical why this happens ! Anybody ????

    Yes, if you sync with iTunes on your laptop then iTunes will create a backup. See if this article helps explain things a little better http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1766

    Thanks Gabe, I sure hope I can do that with my restrictions blocked from me! Being barred from that I can't even to a simple re-set!?? I looked at my last back up and all that was backed up was 55mb!! Surely that is not a full backup!
