Lunch Cast – Move iTunes backup folder

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Windows users tend to have drive C: as a small drive for the operating system.  They use an external hard drive or partition for there data.  iTunes does not give you the flexibility to change where it backs up its devices.

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
