Slow ITunes Backup
I recently had problems synching my new IPOD Touch with Itunes 8. It would just hang on synching and take forever to finally get to the backup. Well I came across this article which tells how to disable the mobile backup process by running a simple command. (NEW – Alsup try this windows APP) The syntax that is used in the article is wrong, so I’ll correct it here:
Windows Users: (updated)
Windows users can use the same approach:
- Quit iTunes.
- Press Win+R (opens the Windows Run dialog)
- Type or copy the following command:
“C:Program FilesCommon FilesAppleMobile Device Supportbindefaults.exe” write com.apple.iTunes AutomaticDeviceBackupsDisabled -bool true
- Open iTunes.
- Connect the iPhone/IPOD.
- Sync without backing up.
