About backing up my iPad...

Long story short...

My Gen 1 32G iPad was backed up to a computer that had its drive re-formated.

Other than iCloud (with its 5G limit, can I add it to a another computer and back it up there, then use that BU on the new 'Pad?

That seems too easy.

I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I think that if you connect it to another iTunes library it won't back it up, but wipe it. Try it, you can hit Cancel before anything happens. Or the "go" button once you realize there's no alternative ...

This is why I pay the bucks for increased iCloud storage. The amount of money I had to spend for the extra storage is a worthwhile investment. It'd be different if it was super expensive. In this case, it's really pretty cheap.

Now, I do automatic backups to iCloud and manual backups to the local computer. That way, if one system fails, at least I have a fallback option. 'course, that I backup the computer backups is a different matter entirely. One way or the other, I can restore the ipad. Same goes for my iPhone.
