Already Changed iTunes Backup Location But Unable to See the Backup?

Even after you have correctly followed the above steps and are unable to find the backup, then we have a separate guide that has you covered.

Most of the time, if you follow the first manual step, the problem arises due to the wrong location address of the new Backup folder. You must get that right. If this is wrong, go to ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync and you will see a white Backup symlink instead of a blue folder named Backup with an arrow.

How to Change the iTunes Backup Location on Windows PC

As iTunes won’t let you change it, you need to make way through a symbolic link. Also known as a symlink, it’s a bridge that connects two folders with the same name. Using a symlink, you can direct iTunes to back up data to a dummy folder that you’ll have to create. However, you’ll have to enter some commands in the “Run As Administrator” window. Just make sure that you create a dummy folder in a drive with enough storage space. Like, we created it in D:\. Let’s get started by creating a folder first.

  1. Create a folder named “MobileSync” in the D:\ (d stands for drive) on your computer.
  2. To view the by-default location, go to C:\Users\UserName\Apple\MobileSync if you have downloaded iTunes from Windows 10 Store. For the old desktop version, you need to go to C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync
  3. Cut and paste the Backup folder to the new MobileSync folder that you’ve created in D:\
  4. Now, run CMD as administrator. To do so, press Windows + R keys together, then type cmd in the search field.
  5. Press Ctrl + Shift + Enter to run it as in the administrator.
  6. Enter the command mentioned below.

If you’ve downloaded iTunes from the Microsoft store. MkLink /J “C:\Users\UserName\Apple\MobileSync\Backup” “D:\MobileSync\Backup

Enter this code MkLink /J “C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup” “D:\MobileSync\Backup” if using the older version.

Now when you back up your iPhone using iTunes, the data will be stored in the D:\MobileSync\Backup folder. Try backing up your iPhone and check if the Backup folder in the D:\ is configured correctly.

iPhone Backup Location Changed Successfully!

This is how you can have new iOS or iPadOS backups to a different location. Changing to some other folder on the same internal disk makes little sense. But doing the same on an external disk frees space on your internal disk.
