    I want to restore to last night's back-up because today I sync'd and I did something dumb and all my contacts are gone. Thanks to mobileme they're gone from my iphone and my Google account too.


    I found the instructions in the manual:

    Restore iPad from a backup:
    1 Connect iPad to the computer you normally sync with.
    2 In iTunes, Control-click iPad in the sidebar, then choose “Restore from Backup” from the menu that appears.
    3 Choose the backup that you want to restore from the pop-up menu, then click Restore.
    If the backup is encrypted, you’ll need to enter your password.
    After restoring from a backup, previous data is no longer accessible through the iPad user interface, but it isn’t erased from your iPad. For information about erasing all content and settings, see “Resetting iPad” on page 125.


    but #2 is where I have a problem. I don't see "Restore from Backup" on a menu.

    Where is it?

    If you right click on the iPad icon in the list of devices in the deft pane in iTunes, you will see that option.
