Creating a backup for your iPad's data is one of the most important things you can do for your device. Not only does it make it very easy for you to restore the backup if you ever lose the data, but you can also restore the backup to the device when switching devices. The problem with an iTunes or iCloud backup is that you are unable to see the files in the backup and can therefore not selectively restore the data. Also, restoring data to your iPad can often mean losing some of the data on the device since you have to wipe all data to restore the backup.
