    Transfering Data from locked down iPad?

    The school has several iPads which have been locked down by an Apple Configurator profile. However, the MacBook which had Apple Configurator and the settings was stolen some time last year. It seems the only way round this is to wipe the devices clean and start again. Is there any way that I can transfer photos and any other data off the iPad? When I tried to connect it to my Windows PC, iTunes complained that the iPad was locked by Apple Configurator. I also can't download any apps to try and transfer the files to the cloud or remove the profile.

    Any ideas? Or is this gonna be an awfully long job of reconfiguring a stackload of iPads?

    Photosync app will allow you to copy photos and videos to a PC over wifi. You could also email documents to yourself or possibly use dropbox to transfer some files. I'm not sure you would get all data off this way, but photos and videos should be recoverable.

    I can't install any apps. Email is also an issue as the video sizes are far greater in size than the max limit allowed for sent attachments.

    Try a program called iFunbox, it allows you to access the file system, may not work but worth a try.
