    Hello to all,

    I would like to know what is the best way with less hassle to back up multiple iphones and ipads, I have CrashPlan and what I do is take out the videos and pictures from the folders inside the Iphone and Ipads and put it together, but I noticed that some of the pictures and videos have the same name and it asks me to replace, overwrite, etc.. and I dont know if I am losing something from it.

    So, to you Apple Guru's, How can I do it painless and without losing my memories?

    Thank you in advance...

    iMazing will do what you want. It can make a complete backup, or archive backups of your iPhones and iPads. You can also do the backups via Wi-Fi.

    You can get it for free right now on http://www.macheist.com It is on the front page about 1/4 of the way down.

    You are welcome, Mike.

    Yes, I use it. I haven't had any problems with it and vendor support (the one time I used it) was very prompt.

    It is packed full of features. It is nice to be able to back up my iDevices without having to connect to iTunes, amongst other features.

    If you have any questions about it, let me know.

    One more!

    Well, since you are offering your help, I have one more.

    I am only concerned on the pictures, I would like to save all my ipads (2) and iphones (2) together in one place without losing any of the pictures, that's all :)

    You can do selective backups with the app.

    Back up to icloud, I found that unless it was completely automatic I wouldn't have up to date back ups

    I turn on iCloud Backups, plug in on WiFi and don't worry about it. Camera rolls are backed up.
