I currently have to use my work laptop (XP machine) in order to use iTunes to sync my iPhone (my main machine runs Linux) and it works fine.
The problem is that we have a 20MB limit on our profile space ('Documents and Settings' folder) as it gets synced with a server when we log in or out. Everytime I connect my iPhone the backup that is created puts me over my limit by 90MB which means I cannot shutdown or reboot my computer until I free up some space. This basically involves deleting the iPhone backup pretty much as soon as it is created.
My question is, is there a way to change the default location that iTunes uses to store the backup? I just need to store it anywhere other than the 'Documents and Settings' folder. Failing that is there any way to disable the backup feature completely?
Failing that, is there any plans for a Linux version of iTunes
Thanks for the info, I've already moved my iTunes folder over to a network drive. I have about 250 photos that I've taken currently on my phone which is probably why it's 90MB but even if I did manage to get it down to 6MB it would put me over my 20MB profile limit.
