Hello community, I don't really sync my iPad 2 too often, maybe once or twice a month, but earlier this morning I plugged it to my computer via the provided USB cable and when it showed in iTunes, instead of syncing, it showed as a new iPad and asked did I want to set-up my iPad by restoring from the last back up, which was December 12. Does anyone know what may have happened? If you don't back-up your iDevice for a while does iTunes forget it existed or something? Also is there anything I can do to prevent me having to restore from the last back up, because I would hate to lose everything I've accumulated since last month. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
