I Tricked iTunes

I Tricked iTunes

There is a nerd living inside me, and sometimes I'm not afraid to admit it. Today I tricked iTunes into doing what I really wanted, and I'm pretty proud of myself.

Here's the problem, Apple doesn't give you an option as to where to backup your iPhone. I don't want it on my C: drive... I want it elsewhere.

So... I used a nifty little app from Microsoft called Junction to create a secret link from the default location to where I wanted it on my D drive. And it works.

Junction works from the command line, so you'll have to type in a command something like this: [junction "C:\Users\User Name\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup" "D:\Apple\Backup"] Before you run this command you'll have to DELETE the original backup folder and CREATE the targeted backup folder.

Happy redirecting! Oh... and this is my 100th blog post. :-)
