I broke my ipad2 screen and needed a new one. So I did a backup of ipad2 to my computer (Mac 10.8.4).  I then erased all the information on my old ipad2.

I did a full recover from my computer when I got my new ipad2.  But, many items in ibooks disappeared.  Things I saved as pdf from other sources like documents, articles off the internet or sent to me from other sources.  Did I do a proper backup to iTunes?  Or did I screw something up and now all the items I lost.  There are some items in iTunes but not everything that was on my ipad2 before I backuped and total erasure.  HELP!!!

iBook G4, Mac OS X (10.3.9)

    it might be too late. did you happen to sync the saved PDFs to your computer first?



    If not, i dont think this is stored in a itunes backup.
