    I have a lot of magazines on Zinio, but I have it set NOT to archive backups. I also just purchased a subscription to Wired, but I don't see any similar options ... Anyone know what's going on?

    Mine did this ONCE a couple of weeks ago. I ended up cancelling the sync, and then I got some error message about being unable to create a backup file. So I let it sync again and just let it finish it's super slow backup...I've not had it do that since.

    How often do you backup? And how many apps do you use?

    If you haven't backed up for about a week or more the iPad backup can take a while.

    When I get that problem I erase my backup an do a fresh full backup, that usually clears the problem up.

    I wouldn't sweat it, Apple is probably just spying on you or something, no biggie
