How Do I Backup My iPad

July 23, 2013 / Posted by Webber on Supported Devices

My iPad backup job has become difficult ever since I updated my iTunes a month ago, the Apple official backup service just blocks my iPad from time to time. It’s kind of ridiculous, right? But if I can’t backup my iPad, that will be annoying, because I use it both at work and at home, so if the data get lost, it will be really bad.

I have been searching on the Internet for methods to backup iPad for days, yet, haven’t found perfect solutions. Neither the iCloud backup nor the Dropbox back are out of my consideration. Even Apple developers’ site could be hacked, why not others? So I prefer to put my private files on my computer other than put them in the cloud. So what I need may be an iTunes alternative to help me with the backup work.

Fortunately, I found one easy-to-use backup tool. It is called Leawo iTransfer, and the functions it has may surprise you. Any media files transfer can be easily done among iOS devices, iTunes and PCs. Backing up iPad is just a piece of cake. It will also make your iOS device as a flash drive so that you can put in any files you want. So how do I backup my iPad with Leawo iTransfer? Check the following guidance out.

Download Leawo iTransfer and try it for free:

Download Windows Version

    1. The iTunes should be installed on the computer to guarantee Leawo iTransfer work; 2. Leawo iTransfer is shareware, and you can try the free version first and check out whether it meets your needs.

Full Guide

Run iTransfer and Connect iPad

Run iTransfer and Connect iPad

Run the software after installing. The iTransfer will automatically detect your iPad and show your iPad information in the software window. You are able to have a general browse of the files in your iPad Library.

Select Files

Select Files

Choose the media files you want to backup. Set photos as an example. Choose Photo Library and click the transfer buttonTransfer Button to get to the transfer settings. Or select the certain photos you want to backup and right click the chosen photos to “Transfer” to “My Computer”.

Backup Settings

Backup Settings

In the backup settings, you are able to choose a folder for your backups. My suggestion is to choose a solid folder which you rarely move as the backup folder for all your iPad files. When you have chosen the folder, click “Transfer Now” to start transfer.

Finish Backing Up

Finish Backing Up

The backup process starts as soon as you click the button. A transfer dialog shows up and notices you the percentage of iPad backup. When the backup process is finished, the photos will be duplicated to the target folder.

I finished backing up my iPad in minutes because I don’t have that many files in my iPad. If you have thousands of pictures and hundreds of movies, or piles of ebooks in your iPad, you can also feel free to backup them to your iPad. The large files’ backup process will take a while but the process is absolutely stable. If you have voice memos, notes and bookmarks in your iPad, you can try Leawo iOS Data Recovery, although it is called “Data Recovery”, it can also be used for backing up files which Leawo iTransfer hasn’t supported yet.

If you search for the transfer or backup software on the Internet, you may find various kinds of freeware, I don’t recommend any piece to you. I have tried some pieces of the freeware, none of these pieces of freeware are fast in speed or powerful in functions, and virus may also be hidden within them.
