itunes could not backup…session could not be created

When you get the dreaded “itunes could not backup the ipad because the backup session could not be created” error, try to powercycle your ipad first before you look into itunes. It could have saved me an evening googling and syncing in vain.

To turn off your ipad hold de sleep/wake button for a few seconds, and slide the slider to really turn off your ipad.

Turn on: hold the sleep/wake button until the apple logo appears.

If your ipad hangs while shutting down (the throbber keeps spinning) hold both the sleep/wake and the home button until the apple logo appears.
