  1. i dont have mobilesync in my applecomputre folder?

  2. It worked well. It is amazing it has to be that complicated. The step by step walk through was perfect to get through it.

  3. In my computer the location is different. Instead of App Data there is seperate Apple Folder which is not hidden. What changes should i do in command prompt?

  4. So from next time when i hit the backup button it automatically goes to E drive right? Or everytime i have to do this procedure?

  5. I've somehow managed to lose my backup folder – it rerouted it but now i can't find it (i used cmd /c mklink /J "C:Users{YOUR_USER_NAME}AppleMobileSyncBackup" "D:IphoneBackup") but i didn't create a new folder with that name (stupidly) and clicked enter anyway now my file is "currupt" and "not found". But I managed to cut and paste the backup before in my D drive (where I wanted it) I'm just so very lost as to what to do 😭

  6. Thank you! Now how do I erase the original stuff on the old backup folder to free up the space on my computer without affecting the new folder and my backup?

  7. Thanks it worked!
    In my case, the folder comes from "C:Users{YOUR_USER_NAME}AppleMobileSync"
    so you should use this command in your CMD:
    cmd /c mklink /J "C:Users{YOUR_USER_NAME}AppleMobileSyncBackup" "D:IphoneBackup"

  8. If you're confused with command prompt here's an easy way to do it just type this in with your own addresses
    mklink /j "INSERT FIRST ADDRESS HERE" "INSERT SECOND ADDRESS HERE (where you want backup saved)"
    You can get to the address by browsing for the file and copying it from the address bar, and when you write the first address make sure you put "backup" not "backup_old" or you get an issue saying "Cannot create a file when that file already exists."

    in the command when I hit enter it says "/c" is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
    someone help me with this issue, please

  10. Can I install Itunes directly to another drive absent the drive the OS operates on? Thanks!

  11. whenever I paste this command in prompt it shows error
    the syntax of a command is incorrect this msg is showing

  12. I did all instructions but i get a syntax of the command is incorrect. I can send screenshot to you if there is email contact.

  13. This worked in CMD but when I try to back up the iPhone now it says "iTunes cannot backup this iPhone because the backup was corrupt."

    Can anyone help?

  14. In newer versions of iTunes i recommend do Two commands:
    example: mklink /J "C:UserswaytoPicturesCamera RollTarget" "P:Target"
    For C: drive:
    1) mklink /J "C:UsersPC nameAppleMobileSyncBackup"
    For %APPDATA%
    2)cmd /c mklink /J “%APPDATA%Apple ComputerMobileSyncBackup”

    Have a good backuping 😉 😛

  15. it says

    C:WINDOWSsystem32>cmd /c mklink /J "%APPDATA%Apple ComputerMobileSyncBackup"

    The syntax of the command is incorrect.

    Creates a symbolic link.

    MKLINK [[/D] | [/H] | [/J]] Link Target

    /D Creates a directory symbolic link. Default is a file

    symbolic link.

    /H Creates a hard link instead of a symbolic link.

    /J Creates a Directory Junction.

    Link Specifies the new symbolic link name.

    Target Specifies the path (relative or absolute) that the new link

    refers to.

    what should i do?

  16. My backup is not saved inside c:/AppData, it’s saved under c:/Apple/MobileSync. I keep getting the following:”the system cannot find the path specified”. Any help?
