    I'm about to take a two week trip, using my iPad 32Gb as storage for photos from my digital camera (and any videos I take with my iPhone). Problem is, I have it so full of apps, books, music, etc, that there's not a lot of space left for "temporary storage."

    I'd like to set up a "new" (secondary) iPad profile in iTunes, with just the basics and "restore" to that one, leaving the "regular" profile backed up on my Mac, then later, after I no longer need the storage space, can I just "restore" to the old "regular" profile and regain all of my existing settings, apps, music playlists, etc.?

    Help/advice is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Michael in Maine

    I've moved this to the Help section with a permanent redirect from its original location as I think you'll receive better attention there. I hope this is OK.

    Yes, like it says here. I went to New Zealand from UK for 10 weeks so I unticked everything I could do without on my final backup and sync before leaving, it was all there when I came back and I brought 2500 photos with me.

    If it helps, I took copies of all the documents as pdfs via GoodReader as well - scanned passports, insurance, driving license, itinerary, Visa, etc as back up

    Enjoy
