I was so devastated because I had lost over 20 of my files, and I had no idea why. I needed to learn how to recover iPad data in a hurry. I had business presentations to give, and my only other option was going to have to be to take the time over the next few days to manually recover everything from other sources. I began to read about how to recover the data and if it was even possible. I did find out I had options, so that gave me some hope anyway.
