I was on vacation recently and took several movies and photos on my iPad2. When I returned my nephew attempted to view the photos on my iPad but did not know the security code. After he tried several codes, all incorrect, my iPad was restored to factory settings. The movies and photos were not backed up to iCloud yet because I just returned today, because I had very little space left on my iCloud account and i was never near reliable internet service to address it. AppleCare says I am out of luck. Does anyone have a different opinion? Can I take it to someone who specializes in hard drive recovery or is that a waste of time? Thanks.
