    i all,
    after some weeks I decided to activate icloud on my ipad

    unfortunately I flagged the option "back up" and therefore it is still running and it means 4 GB of memory gone

    a friend of mine told me that it is not necessary to make the back up on icloud but I am not able to restore the system (with the usual 5 GB available)

    how can I do?

    shall i delete icloud app and download it again? is that safe?

    thanks a lot

    fabio

    Wait, what? iCloud isn't an app you can remove, it's a system setting for backing up your iOS device.

    Additionally, it's backups don't take any space on your device, since it's stored in the cloud.

    To manage (and clean up) your iCloud backups go to Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup. You can see how much you're currently using for backup storage and turn backups on/off.

    Go another layer in to Manage Storage to see what apps are storing Documents and Data. Select the app to a list of it's files, and swipe to delete ones you don't want. It is better to do this from the app itself, rather than risk deleting something you did not mean to, but this is a way around the app if you need it.

    Another layer deep, select your device from the top of the app. Under Backup Options you will see what apps are taking up the most backup space (Select All Apps to see more). You can turn off the apps you don't want to backup to tailor the amount of space your backups will take in iCloud. The Next Backup Size field will give you a running total of how much space you are going to use.

    Editing this is a bit tedious, since each change requires a confirmation, but you don't have to do it very often.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the advise twerppoet. Once I cleaned up memory storage not only did Pages stop freezing, but the iPad itself immediately became faster. What is interesting about this is that I had 12 Gb spare memory before I reduced back ups to Pages and 1 or 2 other apps.

    In upgrading iOS I deleted all my photographs first as suggested elsewhere in this forum and the operation became one of minutes instead of days. Perhaps the issue that I have had with ICloud is that it was constantly backing up photographs which in turn was using all available RAM and slowing down the whole device. Whatever the case, now that iCloud no longer backs up the gajillion useless apps I have or photographs my iPad now runs like a fire engine red Ferrari instead of a Hyundai excel with 300 000 km on the clock.

    Thanks again

    If you delete and clear under ipad will the data only be deleted from icloud and will it still be on the ipad? I think my space is filled with videos I have done n my ipad. Need to keep them on my ipad but want to clear out icloud.
