I used Article: HT2109 to transfer everything from my iPod touch 3g, iOS 5.1.1, to my iPod touch 5g, iOS 6.1.3. Why did data from apps NOT move to the new device? Games are starting over rather than picking up where they were on the old device?


iPod touch, Windows XP Pro, itunes lost when HD failed

    - If you restored the 5G frmm the iTunes backup of the 3G were th app in the iTunes library of the computer you used? They have to be.

    - If yes then try again. When I first restored my iPad 4 from the iTunes backup of my iPad 1 app data did not transfer. I tried again and it did.

    When you restored the backup to the new device the second time, was it the SAME backup used in the first attempt, or did you use a new backup of the old device? Was it an encrypted backup (mine was NOT)?

    Yes, mine was the same backup. Mine was an encrypted backup since I did not want to re-enter keychain items like passwords on the new iPad.

    I will attempt to re-apply the backup... I have enabled backup to iCloud on the iPod 3g and will try to restore that if the original backup doesn't  work out... next option is to create an encrypted backup to see if that makes a difference...
