If like me you have a computer with an SSD Drive this fills up very quickly. iTunes will backup your Phone to the C: drive which could be your SSD drive. This Video shows you how to easily change the Backup folder to be on your D: Drive where there will be lots more space available.

If you want to change the drive and folder name then just change it for what you want.

Text for iTunes location (lurgs will be your UserName):
C:UserslurgsAppDataRoamingApple ComputerMobileSync

Text for the Command Prompt:
MkLink /J “%AppData%Apple ComputerMobileSyncBackup” “D:MobileSyncBackup”

This was working at the time of video upload. Obviously with iTunes updates this may not work for future releases.

*** Update October 2018 (Thanks to Gaurav Sapkota) ***
To everyone having problems
1. If you installed iTunes from the Microsoft App Store, your location path will be “C:UsersGauravAppleMobileSync”
2. If you installed iTunes from apple.com or the web, your location path will be “C:UsersGauravAppDataRoamingApple ComputerMobileSync”

So if you’re number 1 it’s gonna be MkLink /J “C:UsersGauravAppleMobileSyncBackup” “D:MobileSyncBackup”
If you’re number 2 it’s gonna be MkLink /J “%AppData%Apple ComputerMobileSyncBackup” “D:MobileSyncBackup”

Make sure you already have a folder named Backup inside of a folder named MobileSync in the drive you want iTunes to store it’s backup in (D, E, F, etc.) before running the command prompt.
It should look like this D:MobileSyncBackup

Jan 2019 If you are still having problems creating folder at CMD, try enter this command,
MkLink /J “%UserProfile%AppleMobileSyncBackup” “D:MobileSyncBackup”

  3. Already did the backup in C drive. There is any option to copy the data in to D drive and restore in to mobile..?

  4. I tried the command, MkLink /J "C:UsersGauravAppleMobileSyncBackup" "D:MobileSyncBackup" and it said it worked but the little arrow wasn’t on the file so I tried it again and it said local ntfs volumes are required to complete the operation. Any ideas on what I should do?

  5. MkLink /J "%UserProfile%AppleMobileSyncBackup" "E:MobileSyncBackup this worked for me
    Thanks a lot

  6. OMG I LOVE YOU DUDE. YOU SAVED A LOT OF PEOPLE'S LIVES. YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE DONE. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK

  7. When I entered the command in CMD, I received an error "Cannot create a file when that file already exists" And i have already cut and pasted my backup folder to D drive. there is no backup in C drive now. Please tell me solution

  10. Finally a useful, working and quick solution ! Thank you so much, it was driving me crazy and forcing me to do my updates on the phone using wifi. Not anymore APPLE !

  11. i had run the mklink before i created" D:MobileSync " folder, it kept saying could complete cause file already existed
    windows 10

  12. thank you so much. you would not believe how frustrated i was whenever i'd wait minutes to back up my phone only to have itunes say it couldn't because I was out of space LMAO

  13. thanks Lurgs I used your guidelines and free up drive C, Now I need to restore my backup you itunes doesnot read it and the bottom is gray out. I appreciate your help .

  14. It took sometime for me figure it out in my Window PC. Finally got it done. Even i didn’t see the Link for the Window Pc in the description.when i saw it i already spent too much time figuring it out and found it in my way. Thanks to you sir for the help🙏🏻

  15. Hi there, I'm trying to do this a little backwards. I already backed up the file but in order to restore my iphone it wants to save another file which is huge that kicks me out because I don't have enough capacity. So my question is. If I want to choose the file that iTunes uses to backup how do you select the one on your external drive? I spent 4 hours with Apple so far.

  16. Lurgs, help me pls I've been stuck in this step for hours.. i followed each step you made and the command runned well and it created a junction, but the problem is when I go back to itunes to sync my iphone it automatically save the new folder AGAIN to the C drive and '' not enough storage'' apears on the itunes, I tried everything, i deleted the old folder but it appears again in the C, Can someone help me pls?

  17. My SSD storage is full. I created the backup in itunes before formatting my iPhone. Now it is not restoring the backup. It says there's an error while restoring. I presume that's because of the storage issue in my SSD drive.
    So here's my question,
    If I repeat the steps which you did here, will I be able to restore my backup from D which was created earlier in C drive after deleting the backup folder from the original C drive?

  18. My laptop is 64G , too small to backup my Iphone256G . So how can i back up directly to external hard drive ?

  19. Hi! Really aprecciated the tutorial, however, when I try to sync it it just says "The Iphone could not be synced because the sync session failed to start"

    Can you please help? Thanks!

  20. hello Lurgs, I was wondering if you by any chance would know if this also works on a drive that will be disconnected quite frequently. This is because i have a laptop and a 3tb usb hard drive. Thank you in advance.

  21. شكرا ضبط معي الله يسعدك جربت كثير نفس الحركه اللي تسويها من اشخاص ثانين لكن النص تبعك مضبوط , شكررررا جزيلا , فيه عندي استفسار انا حولته الآن من قرص c إلى قرص d لو ابي احوّله مره ثانيه من قرص d إلى قرص خارجي فرضا f كيف النص بيكون ؟؟ أتمنى تجاوب

  22. Hello, I did everything you did and it all worked, but when I went to do the backup it still said not enough storage. I did see it create a new backup in the new backups folder tho. I also had the little arrow on the old backup folder. I have a 128gb phone and 300gb space on my d drive. Thanks
