iPad mini backup will not complete

  Niedobitek 11:06 27 Oct 2015

Since installing 9.1 unable to get backup to finish. iPad mini stated 40 hours to complete via wifi. Deleted most of contents of mailbox but still states it has One Gb plus of mail. In error deleted previous backup and it now states it's never been backed up. Plugged into the mains electricity and speeded up process. After five hours it said only three hours left to complete, but now failed to finish four times. Any suggestions please?

I have the same problem with my iPhone, though my wireless connection is quite faste with 100M

When I had that issue I plugged my iPad into my Mac and backed it up via iTunes. Obviously it's not ideal if you'd rather back up to the cloud, but it should work quicker as it won't be doing it over WiFi. (I assume the same goes for PC/iTunes). It can take a lot of space up on your computer though, so make sure you clear some space first.

Thanks. That is what I did anyway, but obviously want/need to resolve wifi iCloud problem. Not able to use laptop as often as wifi.

Have powered off & restarted my ipad but it made no difference. If I do a restore does it take it back to last backup or factory settings?
