    Hi

    I am using the latest version of itunes on my Mac and recently did a backup and restore as i wanted to upgrade my ipad from 5.1.1 to 6 and i also wanted to JB it.

    With itunes i have created a number of different profiles as I have an ipad, my wife as an iphone4 and also i have an ipod. So there are 4 profiles i have created and these are all stored on the local drive under music, itunes.

    So when i started i opened the profile which i believed was my ipad profile. Itunes picked up the ipad and i performed a backup to computer. I then upgraded the software via itunes, performed the JB but found none of my most recent apps were on there, it was like it only did a settings backup as my mail, some folders and other settings were on there. So i went back into itunes and did a restore from backup, i didnt receive any errors when i did the restore but once the process was finished i still didnt have all my apps.

    On investigation i looked in my itunes folder for the ipad profile and when i did a search for ipa files i found none in there. I then tried to run another backup but still they didnt appear in there.

    I a trying to understand what i am doing wrong or whether itunes isnt working properly for me to do a backup, i am not receiving any errors back when performing a backup and unsure what is wrong here. I have checked the size of the folder and its only 100mb so i know its not backing up the apps, my ibooks as i have GB in there.

    Any advice on this would be most appreciated. When i did my wifes iphone upgrade on here itunes profile, i had none of these issues.

    Is there a way i can reinialise that profile and then try performing another backup to see if it works or would i be better deleting that profile and starting again?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    So your apps are no longer in your iTunes library?

    No not in the itunes library for the ipad profile. If i access my wifes iphone profile all of her apps are there.

    Its like they something wrong with the profile i have created for the ipad.

    I am probably going to recreate the profile, try another backup and see what happens but thought i would ask the question in case some one says "have you tried this?"

    Thanks
