  1. I can’t access photostream on my hppavilion windows 7 64 bit computer. I think that accidently deleated it. Help please.

  2. Where is the downloads folder? I installed the icloud manager and it installs several folders, but no “downloads” folder. Also, every time I go to, login, and try to view a contact, calander, etc. the computer asks to install “icloud web app” but it never seems to complete the install. I can only see two of my contacts from my ipad – no others upload or update, and the calendar also does not sync. Thanks

  3. Photostream has become a piece of garbage. I did what was recommended above and it fixed it for about 2 weeks. Now back to the same problem of my photostream not syncing with my Win 7 32 bit computer. I also have disparities between my iPad and iPhone. To me this is the easy stuff. Why can’t Apple get its act together with this? I see a Galaxy 4S in my future.

  4. Syncing used to be flawless it seems like a year ago, now I cannot get a picture to my Win 7 unless I mail it from my phone to myself. How ridiculous is that? I have done the uninstalls and reinstalls, deleted files and recreated them. Continuously research this topic to see if anyone or APPLE has resolved this issue. I need to get the pictures downloaded in my PC and OFF my phone. Is there another syncing program besides iCloud that I could use NOW??
