    So, I downloaded an update to OS and now I have lost all of my PDF files that where in iBooks. After downloaded the OS update I opened iBooks and for a moment I saw my files and then within 2-3 sec they disappeared and the screen went empty. Where oh where did my little books go???

    Welcome to iMore. I don't use iBooks. So I have no idea what may have occurred. You might try a hard reset of your device. Hold the top power button and the home button at the same time until the Apple logo appears, then release. Let us know if that works. Maybe someone else has a better solution.

    All of mine disappeared from my IPAD sometime between Friday afternoon (8/8/14) and Saturday morning (8/9/14). No restore done. No software updated. The only thing I did was restore an IPHONE thru iTunes. However, my iPad backs up to iCloud, an the iPhone backs up to my mac. They should be independent... ...I would think... Either way, 100% of pdf files in iBooks are gone on my iPad, and nothing else on my iPad is different.

    I've had some for years, months, days, and hours, so a restore shouldn't have effected all of them.

    I'm lost.

    Again, I don't use iBooks. Is there a purchased list for that in iTunes? Check your purchases. They may be there and you just need to download them again.

    Are you backing up your documents to iCloud?
