Backing up your iPad

How to Backup an iPad:
It is most convenient to use the free iCloud services offered by Apple (go to http://goo.gl/487uZ for more information).  However, keep in mind iCloud only offers 5GB for free. You may also choose to backup your iPad to your personal computer.  For more help, see documents at the bottom of this page.

Specific Media Backup Solutions:
  • Transfer a Few Notes and Files: To quickly transfer a few notes and files off the iPad, please consider emailing these notes to yourself before Monday, May 20th. See screenshot for specific example in DocAS. 
  • Photos: If you find that you have a large number of photos, you can upload them to a web storage site like Shutterfly which offers unlimited photo storage through their app. Another option is to share photos to iCloud Photo Stream. 
  • Export Documents and Media to Google Drive or Dropbox: As another option you could export documents out to a Google Drive (or something like a Dropbox cloud service) account using the "Open In..." function found in many of the apps you use. Since these (Google Drive and Dropbox) are cloud-based services you will be able to view files from any computer. Instructions for specifically backing up DocAS to Dropbox are also included below
Back Up to "My Files" in eBackpack (if returning next year): Those students that are returning next school year may also backup files to the "MyFiles" folder in eBackpack. Use the "Open In" function available in many apps or use camera roll to copy files to eBackpack. For more info, view the eBackpack My Files PDF as seen at the bottom of the page.

District-Provided email and web accounts will NOT be available during the summer. If you would like access to your photos, media, and documents over the summer, please share them to a non-Eanes google (or Dropbox) account.
