    Hi, so I recently got iCloud and backedup my iPhone. I can see that there is data backedup but cannot access this data from my pc. Is there anyway to access my icloud backup from a pc? Thank you!

    Ya... thats not what i meant. I backed up my iPhone/computer so when i log in to the iCloud client on a PC i can see there is a backup file but I cannot access it. Icloud.com only has contacts and stuff. I want all my pictures and everything on my PC

    How do I log in at iCloud.com. When I go there I am redirected to https://www.icloud.com/ipad_welcome/, which is just information. I have tapped until my finger tip is raw and I never see a place to log in!

    are you going to icloud.com on your iPad? Because when I login to iCloud.com on my PC I don't get that. I get mail, contacts, calendar, and iWork.

    Yes, I am logging on from the iPad. I guess that is not really practical, but I was curious what was there. I'll try it from my pc. If that works, though, it begs the question of whether I can access iCloud from any iPad?

    Thanks,

    Greg

    Unfortunately, as far as I have read, you can access iCloud backed up data to an iOS device only such as an iPhone, iPad etc. However, if you have an iTunes Match on your PC or whatever you are using, you can restore any thing from there onto the PC easily.

    You can't open/view the content of an iCloud backup on your PC, it can only be used to restore an iOS device, and you try backup iPhone files to PC.

    As far as I know,it's possible to access iCloud backup to PC.
    At first you should download and install iCloud Control Panel for Windows.
    Then you can view and copy iCloud backup to PC.
    With this Control Panel,you can backup directly from iOS device to PC as long as you
    allow iCloud Sharing.
