Solved Reset on an iPod

February 10, 2015 at 02:04:50
Specs: iPod
Do you lose any data when you RESET an iPod Mini to the factory defaults.
I am trying options to gain space after deleting about 200 mp3 tracks but there is no change at all in the free space I was expecting to be available. Please help.

ooops... must clean my specs again; only did them last year...

http://www.wikihow.com/Remove-Songs...

seems to offer two approaches - depending on model?

http://ipod.about.com/od/addingandd...

is another approach.

Backing up an iPod (which I would do first... with any pPod/iPad/iPhone)

http://support.apple.com/kb/PH12325 (windows version)

Likewise the references to syncing an iPod etc. are worth reading; as it allows you to add/delete "stuff" not wanted there anymore...?

A backup allows you to get back/restore (data) to as now - incase anything really goes missing and you can't re-acquire it? A reset of any i-device will wipe all personal data files; as does the same to any computer...

Yes. All of your data/content will be deleted. If you have the songs in iTunes, you can always copy them back after the restore.

Would be wise to back up your IPad first to a computer; then set about the reset... A reset will erase anything that was added after you received the "new" iPad. As already advised above iTunes items can be downloaded again (for free) if still available.

However I don't see why you can't simply connect iPad to your computer, access the iPad and delete stuff that way?

these links may help in that latter regard:

If there are any apps suggested in the above links - I have no experience with them. But I don't see the need for any external apps in this case?

Thank you trvir but my issue is with an iPod that has only mp3 tracks not an iPad,
Does that move the goalposts of what you have advised. I do have my music backed up in Syncios AND separately on 2 other PCs.
