    I have a 32G iPad. I synced with itunes and would only load 8G of music, movies and pictures. I didn'y install any apps and the capacity gauge in itunes show 25G of 'other'. What is other and how do I control the size?

    How many applications do you have installed? I imagine much of that are your apps. If I remember correctly the file system and OS are about 1.5GB out of the box, so that doesn't take up much space.

    No apps yet. I did add an email account, not sure if email content is kept on the iPad?

    Yeah, it is probably that email account. There is a setting to only download new/unread messages I think, unless you want all of your messages.

    That's what I'm trying to figure out. I did not install apps yet, but I did setup a yahoo email account. I don't know what else it could be. I didn't see anything in the email setup that looked like it would help.

    If I were you I'd just do a restore and start from scratch... something seems fishy.

    I did the restore. I never really figured out what caused it to fill up, but it is ok now.

    Thanks Brad

    No problem. I had a similar situation way back when with my first generation iPhone. When in doubt, do a restore is my motto anyway.

    Just shows you that the current memory offerings will soon be inadequate. Next year 512GB Killer Edition iPad.
