I'm afraid I can't be sure of a solution until I ask a few questions first?

Go to iCloud.com with your computer, sign in and then click on iCloud Drive do you see your files there?

Nothing in iCloud drive. Never saved anything in iCloud drive

Mac Support Specialist: Mike, Mac Medic replied 3 years ago
Then what did you lose?

I lost my iCloud

Mac Support Specialist: Mike, Mac Medic replied 3 years ago

I don't know what you mean there are only certain things that are saved in the iCloud what did you lose exactly? You can't lose the iCloud, what is missing?

All of my photos, the majority of my contacts, all of my apps are gone after the warranty guy asked me to remove iPad from iCloud. Could they still be on the iPad? I still have the iPad here

Mac Support Specialist: Mike, Mac Medic replied 3 years ago
On the iPad go to Settings / iCloud all the things that can be synced are listed there are they all checked to sync again? Go to Settings / iTunes and App Store and select all the items under Automatic Downloads. Let me know

Go to icloud.com on your computer and look in Photos are they there? I meant for you to look at everything at icloud.com not just iCloud Drive...

Mac Support Specialist: Mike, Mac Medic replied 3 years ago
If the Photos are there then in Settings / iCloud on the iPad make sure Photos is set to sync.

If they are please go to Settings on the iPad to iCloud then select Photos and turn on iCloud Photo Library and check Optimize iPad Storage then turn on Upload to my Photo Stream

Mac Support Specialist: Mike, Mac Medic replied 3 years ago
What about your contacts are they there at iCloud.com? I can't help you if you just tell me "still nothing"..... that does not help...

What Customers are Saying:

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
