    OK, so I'm wondering if someone with a little more experience can help me. Here's the deal.

    I bought an iPad 3 and instead of restoring from backup, I wanted to set it up as new and then sync all my apps. That's all I wanted to sync, my apps, nothing else. This is the reason I didn't, and don't want, to restore from backup i.e. my iPad 2.

    I set the iPad 3 up as new and then synced all my apps in iTunes. They synced fine, however, I have lost ALL my data on ALL my apps.
    An example of this is notes, I have lost them all. Things like my diary app, all entries are gone. All data from my apps, gone

    Now can anyone tell me why I have lost all my app data? How can I get it back?
    If I restore from backup then my apps get synced and all their data is still there, so why not when I sync my apps alone? I don't want to restore from a backup so that's not really an option. I simply want to sync my apps (nothing else) but where is the data gone?

    Any help would be MUCH appreciated! Thank you.

    Typical! I was beginning to think as much :rolleyes:

    It would be a good option to setup as a new device but then to have the option to only restore the things you want. In my case, just my apps with their original data.

    Thanks for your help :)
