Solved How to restore my iPad?

Specs: Windows 7
So I've recently restored my phone and I even made a back up on my PC of everything on my phone.. Well after the update and restore was over and it was time to back it up, a error comes on my computer screen saying my back up won't work because I don't have enough space on my drive? Which is foolish because I have 1.5 tb left. It's depressing because I had a lot of photos, I didn't buy extra cloud space which now I just did but it's too late. It's weird though because my iPad had all the photos in my photo stream as of an hour ago and now it recently all went away. Any help would be great, thanks!

May I use some Data Recovery tool like this?

✔ Best Answer
Can you clarify your situation thus far?

You have an iPad and backed up the contents?

And then you upgraded it to iOS9x?

On the computer to which you made the original backup - without the iPhone connected can you check/find the backup you made?

This link will tell you where/how to find it:

See if you can find that original backup before proceeding any further

What is not clear is whether or not the original backup is still on the "host" computer; and if so is it accessible?

If it is then the issue to resolve is ensuring the iPad works OK, and also that prignal backup is saved elsewhere ( to external media and/or clud storage). With the backup safe elsewhere any possible problems with host computer can then be addressed/resolved?

Good to know your solution. Thank you for posting back.

Now make a new backup; one if possible to the cloud, and one to your computer. Then copy the computer version to a dvd and maybe to another location on your computer too. Then if for whatever reason(s) the default backup location fails, you have other locations (cloud and dvd) to use if needs-be?
