    Okay, so I need to back up my iPod touch 4g but I don't have space on iCloud because there's another backup that my dad made and I'm afraid that if I delete it, it'll delete everything on his iPad. It's a back up from an iPod that broke and he put it on his other devices. So I'm afraid that if I delete the backup, everything will be erased....I need to jailbreak...

    Welcome to iMore. If you delete the backup from iCloud, you won't delete the data off the iPad. If you don't want to delete the data off of iCloud you can backup to iTunes on your computer.

    Yes, but on iTunes, it keeps asking me to reboot my iPod or restart as new, and it won't let me do anything else.

    Deleting a backup from iCloud or iTunes does NOT delete anything from the device. It is used solely for restoring info in the case of an equipment exchange or if you yourself set up as new and wanted to restore the backup.
    As stated just back up to iTunes, Delete the back up after explaining to dad what you are doing and were advised or buy addl. space. That covers all the answers in one for you. Good luck and Welcome.

    Rebooting your iPod will not hurt anything... Starting from new qill wipe all info and that was the answer i gave you on what a backup is used for. Restoring. You can reboot and it will not remove what you have on it.

    He is referring to an iPod Touch - NOT iPad.

    I said that it won't delete the data off of his dad's iPad.
