hi gang, i have a jb ipad1... i am having trouble backing it up. it appears to backup okay, but then when if i try to restore, itunes doesn't show any available backups. when itunes finishes the backup process, i notice that the ipad appears to be hung up... i have to hold the power and home button for awhile and then it boots like normal if i cruise to the folder appdata-roaming- apple computer-mobile sync-backup there is a weird folder with a lot of numbers and letters. inside that, there is folder called snapshot, and a file called status.plist. inside the snapshot folder, there are a ton of files, total size is about 27 gb. i have a lot of comic zeal files, and goodreader files, so maybe that's what most of the files are however if i reconnect the same ipad, then right click on my ipad, there is no option to restore from backup. also when i go to edit-preferences-devices in itunes, there's no backups showing any help here? i'm ultimately trying to backup my ipad 1 and restore to my ipad 2, however neither ipad 1 nor 2 will see the backups... not sure how to diagnose the problem... any suggestions?
