Hi Everyone,

I have a window 7 laptop and I am having trouble getting even one backup to work on my computer. The itune error message I get is this:

"Itune Could not back up the Ipad because the backup could not be saved on the computer"

I tried everything in the "more information" page (even using a new admin account), uninstall and reinstall Itune, and hard reset my ipad. but I still get the same message. Now because of this I also cannot update to 4.3.1 because it requires a backup before it would install.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
QUOTE Thanks

Give this a try:

iTunes: "Backup could not be saved on the computer" alert message

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

The link for troubleshooting/fixing is already provided above.

Once you have worked through that and still have problems then post back.
