    I had a problem with the 3.2.2 upgrade which wound up requiring a restore. I ended up with missing books and music.

    I found two iPad backup file folders on my computer. Should only be one? I am concerned that future backup/restore operations may be messed up.

    I am considering:

    1) uninstalling iTunes and all it's files from my computer, reinstalling, and doing a new backup.

    OR

    2) Move the backup files to another folder and do a new backup. If it creates a new file, erase the old files.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I called the Apple help desk. It looks like one of the two backup files on my hard drive was corrupt. The tech instructed me to do what I described in option #2 in my original post. That fixed the problem.
