Different versions of Windows store the iPhone backup in slightly different locations, though the version of iTunes does not matter. The Backup folder might contain one or more subfolders that are named with the UDID (unique device identifier) of each IOS devices.
To quickly access the backup folder, just simply hit Command + Shift + G on keyboard to open the Go To Folder screen, then paste this directory path above and click Go. To check the date and time of your last iPhone backup, open iTunes and go to File > Preferences > Devices tab. For those of us with larger storage size iPhone and iPad models, backing up the device locally can be a burden on limited disk space.
Connect the external hard drive to the Mac if you haven’t done so already, then create a new folder on the drive (or partition) to dedicate to the iTunes backups. This offers a great way to save local disk space and offload iOS backups made in iTunes to another hard drive. If you’re interested in storing backups on external volumes, you may also be interested in moving an iTunes library to an external hard drive too, since that can further offload media and free up local disk space.
Advanced users can also perform the entire process of directory creation, copying, and linking from the command line, if desired. Yes, if you backup an iPhone to Windows PC you can also copy the iTunes backup folder to an external drive on Windows, then symlink it to the external drive.
I no longer us Windows primarily so I can’t run through this at the moment, but it works and I used to do it with iTunes media. One would need to do a second backup of this data on another drive or partition in order to be safely backed up. As a follow-up, I have spaces in the names of my External Hard Drive and the file name I want them to be backed up to. I have done everything as directed above, however, as with Shervin above here, I too get the file exists line. Sometimes, after swichting off my Mac I have to install your command in the Terminal when I start my Mac again. I tried backing up Iphone 6 plus 64GB on my macbook air, the backup takes close to 4-5 hours and that too after the backup is finished Itunes still says that the Your device has never been backed up on this computer.
Because you entered something wrong into the command line and you are pointing something at a location that does not exist.
So, I’ve completed the steps #1 thru #7, verified that the symbolic link was created. I have tried your method for backing up my iPhone 6 to my external hard drive (a WD My Passport).
128GB iPhone will take quite a while to backup, but you should use a USB 3.0 cable with the external hard drive when possible for best results. I have done every step as listed and for some reason once done the backup folder that is supposed to be blank with arrow does not appear. I have had to restore an iPhone from the external drive backup before too, and it worked fine. This is almost a necessity considering that Apple is so stingy with Mac disk space, selling tiny hard drives that can barely hold macOS and apps and documents let alone an entire iPhone backup or a photo collection! I have seen a similar iTunes backup error message, I updated iTunes and changed the USB port and it worked afterwards.

Technically you could do this with a network volume as well, but we’re focusing on a traditional external hard disk here.
As long as the external hard drive is connected to the Mac, iTunes will now backup to that external storage volume rather than the internal hard disk. You should still continue to backup to iCloud as well, since having dual backups offers a level of redundancy that is always appreciated should something go wrong.

There was no (recent enough) iCloud backup of the San Bernardino phone, *and* the password was reset.
As in I no longer want to backup to an external hd but to the mac instead, what are the steps? Since the symlink is basically a file (like an alias) rather than a folder, you can either unlink it or delete it like a file and not like a folder. When I do step 7 the Backup folder is there alongside the Backup-old file, but there is no arrow to indicate the folder is linked.
I’m a new Mac user and having trouble creating the symbolic link for APPDATA while transferring from Win7.
I followed them exactly but without success at first, and realised that maybe it was because my backup drive had spaces in the name.

Other iPhone data can be also transferred , including photos, contacts, messages, movies, tv shows, music videos, podcasts, itunes u, audiobooks, and home videos. Backup files created by iTunes are platform independent and can be moved from one operating system to other. We’ll walk you through how to get this setup in Mac OS X, so that any locally made backup from iTunes goes to an external disk rather than the internal drive, thereby helping to preserve local disk space and offload storage requirements.
I personally use the same hard drive for Time Machine and for file storage and created a subfolder on the file storage portion for iOS backups, but you can use a separate drive, a dedicated drive, a partition, or whatever works for you. It’ll have to be for another OS X Daily article, but ln -s for the Mail folder works really well because that folder can become massive in size.
Also, the command line requires precise syntax, without precise syntax you will get errors (or worse) which is why it’s aimed for advanced users only. The clue was that there appeared some separate symbolic links in the original library folder with parts of the drive name.

We made another backup of the phone, performed a sync, and then updated her iPhone to the latest iOS version (4.02).
In reality they were all still there, but for some reason the iPhone inserted an empty screen between the home screen and the screen with her apps. When we scrolled to the second screen and it was blank we initially thought all the apps were gone. We also had a hiccup with her wireless network not letting her PC connect after the iPhone update (a quick reboot of her Airport router fixed this – just unplug it and plug it back in). I wonder if this has something to do with the new media streaming features of iOS.That’s it! I just got a new laptop because my 6-yr old macbook was on the fritz, and my computer engineer spouse got a great deal on a pc so I am sadly leaving apple behind (except for the phone). The playlist, ratings, playcounts, and other metadata should have all come over in the transfer.
