    That depends on what app the audio file is in.

    If you purchased it in iTunes, then you have to use iTunes on a computer. When your iPad is connected and selected in iTunes on the computer, right click on it under the Devices a tab and choose Transfer Purchases. This will copy all your iStore purchased content to the computer.

    There are a few third party apps for the computer to manage your Music app's files, but I'm not familiar with them.

    If you are talking about another app, the ability to export a file will depend on what options the developer provided.

    It is simply something that I've recorded during a meeting with my blackberry and then moved into the Ipad

    It seems impossible to copy it or to move it on another pc

    As Twerppoet said, what app is it in on your iPad, without knowing this we can't help?

    And where is it on your iPad? On an email, attached to an app, etc?

    Have you tried a wired sync to your PC?

    Another question: can I put all my books on icloud to reduce the GB in my ipad? Does it make sense?

    Thanks

    If you got those books from the Apple bookstore, you can delete them from the iPad. They will still be available for a free download any time you wish to read the book.

    If they are books from other places, then, depending on which app you use to read them with, yes, you can do cloud storage. Something like Dropbox would work.

    Which app are you using to view those books on your iPad? Knowing that can help us figure out how to get them to Dropbox.

    If you want to keep PDF books in a cloud service and only download them when needed you'll have to use a different app than iBooks.

    Both GoodReader and PDF Expert have DropBox integration built in. Once you set them up you can upload/download files directly to DropBox.

    You could also use the free Adobe Reader app along side the DropBox app. You would use the DropBox app to download and then use Open In to copy it to Adobe Reader.

    There are lots of other PDF readers out there.

    Basically, you download the books from DropBox to the reader of choice, read them, then delete them when you were done.

    iBooks does not have DropBox support, though you could use it like Adobe Reader by downloading in the DropBox app then Open In the iBooks app; delete when done.

    While there is no way to copy/sync a PDF directly from iBooks on the iPad to the computer, you can email it to yourself. This is the only way to get a PDF out of iBooks. They can not be synced back to iTunes. Only books purchased in the iBooks store will transfer from the iPad back to iTunes on a computer.

    Personally, I do none of these.

    Instead I add all my PDF books to iTunes on the computer first, then I sync them back to the iPad. That way I have a copy on the computer, and I can add or delete them from the iPad by changing my sync settings and re-syncing. Unlike syncing form the iPad to the computer, this direction works fine.

    However, some people don't like to use iTunes. In that case the earlier suggestions should work fine.
