How to Restore iPad from Backup

Can you restore iPad from a backup of another iPad?

My iPad has died and I need to see my calendar. Is it possible to get the calendar from my iPad and restore it with my friend's iPad?

If you have synced your iPad with iTunes after you creating the calendar content, there is a chance for you to get it back, even though you didn't make a backup when your iPad died. iTunes can automatically generate a backup for your iDevice when you sync with it. Get the backup file, you can get your lost calendar, and restore it with any other iPad.

However, iPad backup restore goes a little difficult, because the iPad backup file is not a common file that you can directly view or use.
