This Script allow Windows users to quickly recover valuable space on drive C: by automatically moving all files and folders located in the Apple Computers iTunes MobileSync Backup Folder to a Drive Letter entered when the script is started.
Apple builds great products but the iTunes app designed for Apple's Online Music Sales can progressively dump more than 3Gs in the backup folder each time the iPhone is backed-up. Unfortunately, Apple doesn’t use the Windows temporary file environment or provide a mechanism to relocate the backup folder.
iPhone users who have Windows based computers and smaller hard drives frequently encounter "Low Disk Space" errors while trying to backup their Apple iPhone. Google list nearly three (3) million post from users who need to relocate iTunes Backup files and folders yet Apple has yet to modify the iTunes application so users can customize the location of backup files.
There are alternatives for computers with XP and higher if you know how to use "Redirect". A Windows feature that can spoof the default folder towards a directory in another location or on a different drive. And, there are host of "jailbreak" and "alternative backup" applications that bypass applications like iTunes.
You almost need to be an IT Technician to use those solutions said Edward Gregory, Executive VP at TRON.COM. If a users' hard drive is already low on disk space, loading additional applications may not be possible. The script which is only 8KB automatically creates the necessary folder(s) and moves files from the hidden Apple MobileSync Backup directory to the new folders.
