I setup my brand new Pad mini to restore from iTunes. I had backed up my old "new" iPad to iTunes, and when the step occurred in the iPad mini to setup new or restore from iTunes. I selected restore. The mail, calendar, and other settings all restored, but none of the apps nor photos were restored to the iPad mini.
Is there a setting in iTunes I did not enable to restore apps and photos?
If I attempt to restore again, won't it back up the iPad mini first and then I may lose all my current apps in iTunes?
Thanks for your help
Texas Mac Man,
Thanks for your detailed and fast response, and your guide was very helpful.

I did that when I bought it and installed the first time.
But nonetheless, I tried it again exactly with the following steps:
1. Back-up up my Ipad 3 to iTunes.
2. Delelted and reset to factory settings on the iPad mini
3. Restored the back-up from #1 above.
Same thing, none of the apps or photo's came in. I have been backing up my iPad 3 to iTunes for a long time. Also, when I bought the Ipad 3, I followed the instructions like above to restore from backup to the Ipad 3 (from an iPad 2) and it worked succesfully without any issue.
The iPad 3 and iPad mini are the same capacity, 32 GB. So, thanks for the response, but I am still struggling with this one. I did upgrade the Ipad 3 to IOS 6.0.1.
Thanks again, anyone else with ideas?
