    sorry for another question! When I updated my iPad2 to IOS 8.1.1 few ago, I upgraded to ICloud Drive. With the old iCloud I had a list of my Apps and could chose to store or not in iCloud. With the iCloud Drive, apart from the stock Apps, nothing is listed .
    My concern is that my Social Chess archives and other Chdess videos will all get lost in future backups. Does anyone know about this, please.

    You'll find the list in Settings - General - Usage - iCloud - Manage Storage. The location changed with iOS 8.

    I know where this list is. The point is Social Chess and Chess Openings and various other Chess Apps are no longer there!

    A question, just to make sure what you're looking at:

    On top of the stock apps that are listed, what do you read there:
    Documents & Data, or Backup Options?

    In iCloud Manage DataSection, there is/are Documents and Data, which contain such things as a Journal, but there is no list of the many other Apps, including the Chess Apps, which are very important to me as one has records of all my international games. Btw, I do not have a PC, only the iPad.

    There don't seem to be any backup options.

    I'm also looking at my iPad. On top of the page with Documents & Data, do you see Backups and the name of your iPad below it? If so, tap it. It will lead you to the next page, where you'll find Backup Options with the apps you're missing.

    I haven't got any of that. Could it be that it it is still restoring? Will it come back after it finishes eventually? I decided to let it continue as I wasn't sure what data might be still to download apart from thePlayer I previously mentioned.

    Maybe that's why you don't find this, but I don't really know. When it's still restoring from a backup, backup options might not yet be available for you.

    Apparently it can take a long time, but if it doesn't by say tomorrow, I thought maybe I should erase my data and do another restore from scratch.
