Needing to migrate an original iPad user to an iPad 2, I used the backup and restore mechanism in iTunes (on a PC)
However, the following steps resulted in many of the apps being missing on the destination device:
- Backed up an original iPad to iTunes on a PC
- Factory-reset an iPad 2
- Connected the iPad 2 to the same PC, and restored from backup
Some time later, the iPad 2 claimed to be set up, but many of the apps were missing. Instead of there being 3 screen-fulls of apps on the restored device, there was only one, and this was mostly the original Apple apps.
iTunes didn't report any errors throughout this process.
What can I do to fix this?
