    I recently reset my iPad and restored it, hooked it back up to iCloud and there are some inconsistencies with my other iCloud devices.

    For example, prior to restoring my iPad, iPhoto on my Mac and Photos on both my iPhone and iPad each had identical photo streams.

    After restoring my iPad and connecting it back up to iCloud, it only has more recent photos and doesn't reflect all the photos seen on my Mac and iPhone.

    My question is, where is our 'master' photo stream stored? As if I can put my photos back there, surely that should amend these inconsistencies.

    Anyone else experienced this?

    Any help much appreciated, thanks.

    Your photos are stored in the cloud for 30 days. So you have 30 days to download them to you devices. To get them on your iPad again, send them to the photo stream again from iPhoto.

    Note that your iPad only stores the last 1000 photos from the photo stream.
