    I updated my iPad to iOS5. My first backup since the update took much longer than backups on the previous version of iOS. It also took a lot more disk space than the others. I eventually cancelled the backup since it looked like there might have been an error. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

    Did you notice it taking a lot more disk space than usual? I don't usually monitor that, but I was in the one of the folders on the computer and I noticed the space indicator going down pretty quickly. After I cancelled the backup, the disk space that it took was not returned. I found the files that were made from the backup in "Library/Application Support/Mobile Sync/Backup/<the ipad backup folder>/Snapshot/ ". Would it be safe to delete just these files?
