Dear All,

Something went wrong with my ipad and it went into recovery mode... so I am trying to restore it.  I have plenty of free spce ~30 GB on my Laptop and was going very nicely with the restore.

However it then produced an error saying there is no free space.  When looking at the backups in iTunes, there is now two backups, both dated 1st May 2011.  There was previously only one backup.

I now have no free space on my hard drive and I cannot restore the iPad.  Also I don;t know which backup to delete as both are dated the same date.  I guess one is incomplete.
