Did a restore from MBP to restore contacts No Icloud enabled no photo stream. After the restore all the new photos were gone and only the ones from the backup remained there was no warning prior that the Ipad was going to be wiped and just the back up data restored It did say that contacts and notes would be.I know I should have backed up prior but the milk has already been spilled by me. Anyone had any luck with getting them back in this situation? I wish I had a friend in the CIA because it seems that is probably the only way to get them back.

    There is no way to get the photos back. When you restored the iPad from the backup, you erased the photos in the process and without a backup that included those photos, there is nothing to restore them from.


    The photos are gone.
