  1. How can I change the location of my iPhone backup to another drive?


    I need to move my iPhone backup off of my OS drive which iTunes selects by default. I've been trying the "mklink" method to create a link to another drive with no success. It doesn't seem to do anything once I type in the command followed by the current location and then the new one that I created.

    Is there something I'm missing to this? Any other method to move, or otherwise tell iTunes NOT to backup on the C drive, but somewhere else instead?

  2. Change Backup Location

    I'm trying to update my phone, but can't so far because my C drive doesn't have enough space for a backup. My computer is partitioned right now, so is there any way to change the backup location (i.e. to another drive)



    Thanks
