    iPad Data Recovery

    Is there a program for getting into the actual disk and recovering software on an iPad that anyone would recommend here ?

    I ask as we have a member of our SMT who had locally saved notes which have now disappeared on the device as a result of an upgrade and rebuild without saving them.

    I have tried the Dr. Fone iOS data recovery and notes are not in there for the device.

    Any help is appreciated here.

    Was there any backups made before the upgrade was done as I believe ( not 100% sure ) that you could use SQL Lite or something of that nature to read text messages / notes etc from backups that iTunes has already made ?

    Processing iPhone Backup Files

    How to recover your iPad or iPhone notes from your Mac

    A few links found via google, not sure how much help / use they are

    Failing that if its a mac computer you can use the connect to / browse to folder to mount the storage area of the ipad / iphone

    May be able to use device manager -> disk management to do something similar

    Apps etc if the iPad was connected to the computer ( whether mac or windows ) that they use it with ( presumably ) then it should make a copy / backup of the apps inside the apps directory which I believe is generally within the iTunes directory --> Apps or Applications , I think for my iPhone it places them in Mobile Applications.

    Notes were turned off in the backing up of this device, because it was a shared account behind it all and we didn't want any individual doing potentially confidential stuff and getting it shared via icloud

    I get the feeling their on the devices, but this really isnt helped by the fact that its apple and they deliberately try and obfuscate accessing this device normally imo

    I have run Dr Fone on the device and its turned up nothing in the backup on the notes.

    None of these programs seem to search the storage on the device, only the OS as far as I can see because of this, unless these notes have been securely wiped.
