    My iPad 2nd Generation is attached to my Macbook Air. I am attempting a backup (iCloud) of the iPad, but the time remaining is stuck at 4 hours, and sometimes that changes to more hours.

    I have deleted most backup items on the iPad, have lots of iCloud space, both devices are connected to my home network and show a good wireless connection,

    Is there a reason for this problem, and a solution?

    Thanks for any help.

    Is the iPad able to back up to iCloud over the air?
