This is a post I extracted from Apple community: “I’ve been busy with schoolwork so I just got around to updating my iOS from 6.1.3 to 7.1.1. As all of you probably know, it was a much needed update since some apps stop working on older iOS versions. I first updated iTunes which was also out-dated. After restarting my PC I then connected my iPad and clicked the update button. As iTunes began to backup my iPad, it encountered and error (it didn’t specify) and apparently lost communication with the iPad. The iPad was frozen. I am assuming it was waiting for iTunes. I tried re-inserting the USB but the device no longer registered with my computer. The only thing I was able to do was turn off the iPad but that put it into recovery mode. iTunes was then able to communicate with the iPad but insisted that it must be restored to factory settings. Since it was reset to factory settings, iTunes then asked if I wanted to set it up as a new iPad or restore from a backup. The problem is that for the same reason it has taken me so long to update iOS, I have also not created backup for the past 14 months. Is there a way to recover the data that was on the iPad or has the last 14 months been lost in manner of minutes?”
Have you ever had difficulty in recovering your iPad data via iTunes? When you meet with the above problem, what will you do? Are you upset and anxious? Now you can take it easy when faced with such a problem because there are indeed ways to help you recover your iPad data like messages, photos, notes, contacts, etc from iTunes.
Recover the data on iPad with iTunes.
Most people will turn to iTunes to backup and restore their iOS data. Yeah, iTunes can help you backup data and restore them. But sometimes it sucks just as the above post mentioned. First, it costs longer to backup and restore your data from iPad. Second, you cannot have a look at what you have backup and restored. The only thing you can confirm is that you indeed backup these files. Last but not least, sometimes you will lose your important data when you restore your deleted messages, photos or other data.
