Please Help!!!


I did a school project on Friday afternoon, took a lot of photos and videos. I came back home and connected it to the computer trying to edit the videos on computer. Then iTunes automatically opened and synced it, after it was synced the iPad became a new one with backgrounds and data lost. Although I still have some photos left because my family has another iPad and we use the same account, and the photos from that iPad came into mine.


I went into settings - iCloud - Storage and Backup - Backup Now. After a minute of waiting, I recovered the photos lost during the sync into Photo Stream, but not the videos I took. Why was that? How do I recover the videos as well?


This is on the New iPad/iPad 3.

iOS 6.0.1
