    Does the iPad need to be on in order to back up to iTunes?

    Yes. The very second that you connect an iPad that’s turned off to your computer, it will power on.

    Much appreciated. Cause my iPad is backing to to my computer and the status bar is not making any progress but the small graphic next to the WiFi signal is turning.

    Just wondering if the iPad is still backing up or quit backing up on its own.

    Just give it time.
    You’ll eventually know when it’s finished or when the backup has failed.

    Well what I ended up doing is to disconnect the iPad from the computer cause iTunes would not respond to the mousie. Then reconnected iPad. Redid the backup. Then after that SYNCED the phone. That worked perfectly.

    So then I decided to update iTunes to the newest version then rebackup and resync the iPad. Again worked perfectly. I did this that way the replacement iPad will be backed up to the broke screen iPad with the same iOS version and iTunes version using restore.

    Ok my computers C drive is like 2.64 MB’s free out of 1 TB. So I am moving my I phone and iPad backups from the C drive to a external hard drive.

    Now when I want to restore a device in iTunes does itunes automaticaally locate backups on a external hard drive?

    Here is another thing. I purchased another computer so I would have plenty of room for backups. What us weird. On my new computer the backups are not saves with the name of my preferred name I gave my devices.

    Example I name a device like IPad 256GB 2nd. The back on the new computer is saved as iPad 256. The 2nd is missing. Here are the photographs I’d the two computer backups.

    The top is the older computer backups.
