Hi and Welcome. My Name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

In your iPad, goto Settings and tap iCloud. In there, tap Storage & Backup

You can find what is taking up your iCloud space in there. You can even purchase more Storage Space for your iCloud from there

Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troubleshooting. Don't Rate my answer until you are satisfied

I have done thT but it doesn't show how much space is taken by what i only have notes, calendar, reminders, contacts and find my ipad on. That shouldn't take 5 GB of space. I don't even have my emails backed up. Don't know if my pics and music are backed up. I know I can buy more storage for 15 GB for $240 qnd don't want to do that. If its my music taking the space can I tr,ansfer it to my ipod and delete it from my ipad to have space. I don't want to delete it if it is not even backed up. HELP PLEASE


thanks

Goto www.icloud.com and login to your iCloud account. You can see what is taking up your space there.

It will also take space to store the backup of your entire iPad or iPod

Can't you see how much space is taking by the Pictures and Musics in there ?

If you don't want the Musics and Photos to be backed up to iCloud, you can deactivate it from there.
Ask Your Own Mac Question
15GB Additional Space is only $20/year

Are those Musics on your iPad are purchased from iTunes Store ?

The icloud says $240 where do i get the $20 a year?


 


only 25 songs are purchased. The rst were passed from either my ipod or computer i don't remember


 


if you can walk me through the $20 year purchase that would be great as I don't have much more time


thanks


 

Here it is : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4874

You can even get 50GB for $100 a year : http://www.apple.com/icloud/includes/lightbox-storage.html

iCloud is not that expensive.

25 songs won't take that much space. Do you have any big apps installed ? Did you checked how much space your iCloud is taking to for the backup of your iPad or iPod ?

Thats strange. In your iPad, goto Settings and tap iCloud. Tap Storage & Backup. What can you see there ?

Customer reply replied 6 years ago

Total storage 5MB avail 228MB in manage storage it has back ups Lynn this Ipad 4.8 GB Mail 5 MB and change storage plan $240

Well, we have found out the problem. Your iPad is backing up the entire contents to your iCloud. The iPad's "backup" itself is taking up 4.8GB of 5GB and you have only 228MB Remaining (1024MB = 1GB)

The "backup" include Apps, Musics, Photos and everything on your iPad.

To delete that "backup" backup, select that backup and it will open the Backup in new screen. Tap Delete Backup. See a sample picture below;

Regarding the price, I will check it and let you know.
Ask Your Own Mac Question
It is very strange that the price is $240 for 15GB. I've searched online and still the price shown for 15GB is $20 per year.

You will have to contact iCloud Support to know about the price. You can contact iCloud Support from here : http://www.apple.com/support/icloud/contact/

Ok i now deleted back yp. And have set the few things i want but cant find pictures or music.

Do i connect the i pad to my computer to back up in icloud on the computer?
Deleting the backup won't delete anything from your iPad. If you lost any Musics, you can redownload them for free since you already purchased them. See here : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2519

You can backup your iPad to your computer as well on your iPad. See here : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1766

How do i back up my ipad with only the things i want
Do you want to backup to iCloud or to your PC ?
Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
Icloud
In your iPad, goto Settings and tap iCloud. In the iCloud, you can see your Account name and several options under it like Mail, Contacts, Calendars etc

Turn on Mail if you want to backup Mail. Turn on Bookmarks if you want to backup Bookmarks etc. Repeat the steps for all the items you want.

I'd still recommend to backup your iPad to your PC

My i pad supposedly finished the back up but i have the 5 MG still available so I don't know if it did itYes
Sorry for the delay...It must be backed up. Now, we can backup your iPad to your PC. Are you using the latest iTunes 11 ?
Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
Yes
At least i think so my computer is slow should i open i tunes or i cloud so i will be ready
Yes. If you are using iTunes 11, open iTunes. In iTunes, select your iPad in the top right. Under Summary tab, click the Backup Now button. See picture below;
graphic

If you are using iTunes 10 or lower, follow the steps below;

Connect your iPad to your Computer and open iTunes. Right Click on your iPad under Devices column in iTunes and select Backup. This will backup your iPad. See picture below;

Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troubleshooting. Don't Rate my answer until you are satisfied

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
