    Hi all, I'm hoping anyone can answer this for me. I have owned and used my iPad 2 from new 6 months ago. I first activated it in a wifi network without a pc, and I have used it this way since. I have lots of files inside my apps that can't be backed up but can be accessed from a pc. So I have a pc now and am about to do my first sync. I know in the past with my iPhone it blanked the data on it and even after syncing the apps back I lose all my associated files.
    Will this happen this time? Will I lose everything like my pictures and files? I have never done a cloud sync either but I can do one before I start just I'm not sure if the 5gb will be enough.
    Can I get the files off my apps like idownloads and document editing apps before I sync to iTunes?
    Any advice would be helpful.
    iPad 2 32gb 3G and wifi model.
    Many thanks

    Hi,

    Syncing through ITunes shouldn't cause any loss of data on your IPad. Also, unless you specify that photos and/or data be removed, they will remain.
