    Hi

    This is my first post. I am keen to upgrade my iPad2 to 5.0.1 but a little scared.

    How can I tell if I have backed up ALL of my photos?

    And is Flash player coming anytime soon?

    Thank you in advance for any help.

    Hi and welcome as well! Regarding your concerning about your photos, why not back up your photos first to iTunes prior to updating your iPad? Another recommendation is emailing your photos and important documents to yourself beforehand as well. Just some things I remember reading and doing prior to doing this update in last October.

    Thanks everyone.

    When in iTunes when I "click" photos (top right) and TICK Sync Photos from - It seems to want to take pics from my pc to my ipad. How do I get them to go the other way or make sure that they are backed up?

    I will look at the links above to see if there is an answer there.

    Thanks in advance
