i did all these steps .
I just install on my device a program called itools which give me imformation about the backup files and i can browse them by it.
The problem is the backup file is 2.3 GB only !!!
so this means there is some thing wrong with the backup and it did not take a full back up , which suppose be a full taken by the ituns.
A backup of your iPad will back up
-apps and app data
-photos and videos *on your camera roll*
-Text messages and a few other things
It does not back up:
-Music, videos, or other media
-Pictures and videos outside of the Camera Roll.
These things would have to be backed up from your computer (eg, with Time Machine), and then restored by syncing *after* the restore of the iPad backup.
If they were purchased from iTunes, they can be redownloaded, if they are not on the computer.
