Where are iPad backup files stored on my Windows computer?

The location of the iPad backup files created in iTunes is the following directory:

Windows XP
\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\

Windows Vista or Windows 7
\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\

Replace USERNAME with your personal account name.

If I connect my iPad to my computer iTunes wants to back up my calendar from my computer to the iPad. As I update my calendar all day via my iPad, how can I get iTunes to backup my iPad calendar TO my iTunes (computer) calendar?

Whenever I connect my iPhone it immediately transfers my updates on my phone to my computer but the iPad seems to do the opposite. Have I set it up incorrectly?
