How to Back Up iPad RPG Game Data

After finding the best RPG for iPad, you can start your own adventure in the game. Most RPG games would take a long time to complete all missions. So the game data is important as once you lose it, all your previous efforts would go to waste. It's important to back up your game data when you've played the game for a certain period of time to prevent data loss.

To back up the data of your iPad RPG games, you can either go with iCloud or iTunes. And iTunes is obviously the better choice here as the storage space on iCloud is limited and those iPad RPG games would take up a lot of spaces and iCloud might not have enough storage space for it. So here I would show you how to back up your iPad RPG game data using iTunes.

1. Make sure that you are using the latest version of iTunes. Open iTunes and connect your iPad to your computer with the USB/lightning cable that comes with it. You can use a third-party USB cable but the original one is preferred. Later you should see the icon of your iPad appear in the upper left section of the interface, click on it to go to Summary.

2. In the Backups section, there's a Back Up Now button, click on it to back up your iPad.

In this way you will have all the data backed up with iTunes at the same time you back up the data of your iPad RPGs. It's good to have your game data backed up, but when you want to recover something from the backup other than the game data, then it could be a disaster because when you restore your iPad from the iTunes backup, the new game data will be overwritten by the game data in the backup. So it's better to use a backup extractor to extract files from the backup so you won't have to worry about your game data being overwritten.

Here I would recommend Leawo iOS Data Recovery, it's a data recovery program as well as a backup extractor for iOS devices. You can use it to easily extract 14 different types of files from the backup to your computer without having to restore your iPad with the backup.


1. Open Leawo iOS Data Recovery, move your mouse over to Recover from iOS Devices and click on it.
