    As anyone else ever had this problem? On doing a soft reset, all my folders that I had spent hours organizing are gone...all the apps are loose in the main screens. This has happened before on my iPhone and the iPad 1, too. Anyone know why it happens? Is there any way to get the folders back without redoing them from scratch?
    So frustrated!

    Thanks...I have a totally insane amount of apps loaded...at a guess, over a thousand. Hello, my name is Shae and I am an APPaholic. At least my last iCloud backup was last night. I hate when this happens...anyone know why it happens?

    Did you know they actually have apps for our pets' entertainment? I kid you not. I think there actually *is* an app for everything!

    If you have a recent ipad backup , that will reset the layout you had, but be carefully as it will overnight new data in apps since the backup.

    Thanks... I ultimately decided to just reorganize them. It's a pain and a load of work, but also a good way to rediscover apps I installed and forgot about.

    Purrfect, if you is a cat enthusiast. However, not withstanding, whilst said enthusiasm is a bit lower here, 'twas nevertheless interesting to see so many apps available.
