    Getting corrupt back up message since updating iPad 2 to IOS 5.1 through iTunes

    After updating my iPad 2 to IOS 5.1 through iTunes from Windows 7 laptop, I got a corrupt back up message saying “iTunes could not restore the iPad because the backup was corrupt or not compatible”. How can I avoid this corrupt back up message?

    The restore back up you have taken belongs to the previous version of the IOS. so that will definitely not work because thats corrupted. The corruption of data can occur in many ways and there is no specific way to handle it. Once its corrupted it is very hard to replicate the same functioning data in to the back up. You need to get fresh back up data from Apple. They will provide you alternate options and you will not get the same back up.
