It’s really important not to rely on the backup to save all your apps and data because it doesn’t include everything.

To ensure you don’t lose anything, under sync preferences make sure that you have all the relevant files checked to be included when syncing then sync your iPad.

To recover the backup, connect the iPad then Right-click the device and choose Restore from Backup.When connecting a new iPad, iTunes should prompt to restore from your backup.

For any apps, files, calendar info, Outlook data music etc that you don’t retrieve from the backup you just look at sync preferences and make sure that the relevant boxes are checked to include those items when syncing. Once you have done this you can sync the iPad to get those items back. so long as you have synced them correctly in the first place.

I think by default itunes creates a abackup of everything when you backup using itunes right click backup option. I never changed sync preferences when backing up my ipad

@Hammond thanks for the input but the info you gave here is incorrect. The backups created by iTunes do not include everything. Specifically they do not include content synced to the device, such as movies, music, outlook data, apps etc.

If you dont have anything synced to your device then fine but for those that do, relying on the backup alone could lead to data loss.
