Just backing up is taking mine forever. I removed all my music from iPad in hope this would speed things up, so i am only using 14GB of 32GB. Geesh....need to get back to the office! lol
Backups are normally incremental. This is a full backup and restore so it will take some time.

I was thinking that too!

Hey, babe, is there a way to get a number on how many are downloading at this time? In the states vs around the world? You are so good at this type of research.
I doubt it...Apple keeps a very, very tight reign on any of their services. They will probably announce how many...as in "1 Million downloads in the first hour" or whatever...but finding out any details? Probably not going to happen.

Nice new avatar BTW! :)

My iPad is going to be wiped out? It said it would keep my pics and stuff though right? Would they just have to be put back on after it backs up?

Sorry I sound like a complete idiot.

A question ? would I get a quicker download if I turn off Wifi on my Imac, I have it plugged into the Ethernet port, or should I disconnect the Ethernet and just use wifi.

Shouldn't make any difference if you turn WiFi off...stick with Ethernet if you can...always.

No worries, everything will be there when all is said and done.
