If you have some questions about ipad backup, all are done at a time. I have experienced similar problems, the imformation be summarized as follows:
iPad is the most popular gadget in all over the world. Every gadget lovers want to buy this device. It behaves like a portable small computer in which you can do everything same as computer or laptop. You can play or watch HD movie, capture HD Video, Play high graphics game etc. It has also very large storage capacity in which you can stores thousands of songs, pictures, videos, games and many more information. In this situation it becomes necessary to keep a backup of iPad in MAC or Windows.
iTunes can create backups of settings and certain other information on iPad. You can use a backup to restore this information to your iPad after a software restore or update, or to transfer information to a different device. You can delete a backup from iTunes using the steps below.
1. Connect your iPad to your computer,
2. Select your iPad device in iTunes, and then
3. Choose the ‘Sync’ option to make a backup.
You can use iTunes to sync content on your computer (such as music, applications, podcasts, videos, photos, notes, email account settings, contacts, calendars, and bookmarks) with your iPad. If you want to transfer photos to ipad and free ipad books download, just do it like this.After keeping an iPad backup in MAC or windows sometimes it gets hard to find iPad backup Location. The folder where your backup data is stored changes depending on the computer’s operating system. Since iTunes only keeps one backup per device, you should ensure the backup folder is included in your periodic data-backup routine.
iTunes places the backup files in the following places:

* Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/
* Windows XP: Documents and Settings(username)Application DataApple ComputerMobileSyncBackup
* Windows Vista: Users(username)AppDataRoamingApple ComputerMobileSyncBackup

You also can create backups in the following ways:

* If you do not have your iPad sync automatically when connected, iTunes will create a backup when you choose to sync.
* Right-click (or Control-click) the iPad in iTunes under Devices and choose Back Up.
* If you choose to update the software, iTunes will back up the iPad automatically.
* If you choose to restore the software to factory settings, iTunes will ask you if you want to back up the iPad.
* After restoring your iPad software to factory settings, iTunes will show a Set Up Your iPad screen. If you choose to “Restore from the back up of”, iTunes makes a copy of the backup you chose to restore from and that copy is marked in the syncing preferences of iTunes with the data and time when the backup was created.

Restoring from a backup
To restore information from a backup, use one of the following methods after connecting your iPad to the computer with which you normally sync:

* In iTunes, select the device, then select the Summary tab and click Restore (this deletes all data on iPad and restores to factory settings). When prompted by iTunes, select the option to restore your settings.


* Right-click (or Control-click) the device, and choose Restore from Backup.

Deleting a backup
If you want to delete a backup created by iTunes, follow these steps in iTunes:

1. Open iTunes Preferences:Windows: Choose Edit > Preferences. Mac: Choose iTunes > Preferences.
2. Click Devices (iPad does not need to be connected).
3. iTunes will show the serial number and IMEI (iPad 3G only) of the backed up iPad when you position your mouse pointer over a backup. Use this to locate the backup for the iPad you want to delete. Select the backup you want to remove and click Delete Backup.
4. Confirm you wish to remove the selected backup by clicking Delete Backup.
