I followed the above instructions but the calendar did not appear.
Unfortunately, this hasn't worked either.
I tried unclicking contacts & calendars; synching; reclicking contacts & calendars; and synching again one more time. No success. I disconnected and reconnected the iPad and tried synching again. No success.
My iPad is still restoring apps and I have to go to a meeting. I will reconnect once the restore has completed and I can see whether calendar and contacts will synch (later this afternoon).
My computer seems to be stuck in a loop. I just got back from my meeting, and the message "waiting for items to copy" is still running in iTunes. I tried a couple of my iPad apps and they are working, but still no calendar, limited contacts, and I now realize I don't have notes anymore either.
I'm wondering if this could be a problem with how my PC files are synching with iCloud. When I click on iCloud from Outlook on my PC, there's nothing there, even though iPad thinks that my calendars... are synching via iCloud.
I wondering if it makes sense to hit restore again, and this time, instead of restoring from backup, I'm going to try to reconfigure the iPad as though new. I am hoping (!) that I'll be able to transfer everything from my PC (music, books... as well as information) to the newly configured iPad.
Let me know what you think of this idea, or whether you have another recommendation.
Unfortunately, things have gone from bad to worse. I restored the iPad, attempted to set it up as new. Still no notes, calendar, and only a few contacts.
So I tried re-synching it checking calendar, notes, and contacts under the "advanced" section in info.
Still no luck. I admit to be completely at a loss!
I figured it out! I couldn't figure out how to let you know before getting your response. It seems that somehow I created a separate outlook.pst folder that neither iCloud nor iTunes could recognize! So that outlook data file was visible on my PC, but not on either iCloud.com or the iPad. I have copied all of the notes and contacts from that outlook.pst to the one that iTunes can see, and added an additional calendar to that data file. It means that I have a lot of duplication taking up data space, but at least I can sync files.
Thanks for your help! You helped me eliminate possibilities until I could find out what happened.
