I'm searching for Windows software to fully back up an iPad.

iTunes only saves those files which were transfered from the same Apple ID.

I need to backup songs, apps and photos. Perhaps the e-mail configuration, too.

I have to update an iPad from 4.3.3 to 5.1, without losing any data.

You can use iPad to Computer Transfer (ATTENTION: Direct download link). It's an easy tool which allow you to do exactly what you've asked for. Here is an excellent how-to guide.

And if you're looking for a more solid (and more expensive) solution, you can always try iPad Max.

  • Thanks! Is there a way to backup Apps as well?

If you are searching a tool to fully backup your iPad, iTunes is the best tool. But if you are not going to use iTunes, maybe this iPhone Data Recovery can help which enables you back up all iPhone data on PC.
