Itunes Backup


I would like to change the location of the Itunes Backup (Iphone) on my PC from C:\ to D:\

I would like not to use symlink...There should be in the configuration somewhere you can change the location !

Please help.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If your external drive is let say F: for example, just execute this command using CMD as Administrator

mklink /J “%APPDATA%\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup” “F:\iTunes Backup”

Open in new window

Thank you guys, but my question was about to change the location WITHOUT having to do Symlink (MKLINK)
Tom CieslikIT EngineerCommented:
It's only way to do via mlink command

Sadly, you cannot change how iTunes works and there is no user configurable change for modifying the location of iTunes backup.
