One resolution is to use a program called junction that redirects folders to another location.

Download the tool from Microsoft

  1. Copy it to your windows folder
  2. Create a destination folder on your alternate drive (EG:  d:\backup)
  3. (XP users)  D:\>junction “C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Apple Computer\Mobile Sync\Backup” D:\backup -s
  4. (Vista / Windows 7) D:\>junction “C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup” “D:\backup” -s
  5. Change username to your actual username in the above examples
