Sync Ipads with Itunes on Computer : it backs up then when I look at Summary it tells me this ipad has never been backed up to this computer? I have done this forever. So I then decided to go to Files : Devices : Restore Backup, which I do regularly and iPad backups up automatically when syncing anyway, and Backup device is highlighted and Restore Backup is greyed out so I cant do this either? W hat is happening. My last 2 weeks have been a nightmare upgrading to IOS 10 and now again IOS 10.2.1. I am working with a bank of 25 iPads so to loads seperately onto each iPad - my last resort which I have just started is really the end.

iTunes does not automatically back up every time you sync, so maybe it didn't do a backup just then? If you press the button to make a backup, does it backup successfully and change the last backup date?

An article I wrote awhile ago about syncing vs backing up, for reference: https://deciphertools.com/blog/2015_01_27_itunes_sync_vs_backup_ensure_data/

  • The message is still there and on every ipad.... I had 25 ipads and they have always backed up automatically to my computer, it is set on my system to do this. This is the first time in the 6 years i have used ipads I have had a problem. I update and resync my ipads every week ie over 3000 times x 25 ipads . So i dont think that is the answer – Fleming PrePrimary Centre Feb 17 '17 at 9:59
