How to move backup dir in itunes to another dir using symbolic link

30 Apr

Itunes backup of Iphone/Ipad took too much space on my C drive. Below is a suggestion on how to “move” the dir to another drive/disc which have more storage space (Windows 7):

  1. move dir “c:\Users\userx\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup” to new dir
  2. delete “c:\Users\userx\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup”
  3. mklink /d “c:\Users\userx\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup” h:\Backup\
