    Default [iTunes][2.0] Very long 'Backing up iPhone' during sync

    Hi,

    I've noticed that since I updated to 2.0 the syncing in iTunes seem to take a very long time; most of the time is spent in 'Backing up iPhone...'. This occurs even though I sync the phone pretty much daily and don't change that much stuff on it. The length of time taken suggests that iTunes is making a full backup of the phone each time, is there any way I can get the incremental backups to work correctly again?

    I'm experiencing the same thing with the 3G iPhone. Not quite sure why it does this. I was in the Apple store and one of the employees said a 2.0.1 or 2.0.5 will probably come out soon because there are lots of little bugs with 2.0

    Cool. Hopefully Apple releases it as soon as it's ready. I am guessing you're probably getting this on a Mac; I have been wondering if it's just some pain Apple decided to inflict on Windows users (although one would argue we're used to pain in Windows )

    There's a small part of me that says they're holding it back until the Dev Team release their JB tool, then modify the update to brick jailbroken phones. I'm probably wrong about that.

    I am facing the same issue. The back up is taking forever. I have the phone synced with two computer. Office PC where I sync calendar, contacts, photos. Home Mac for music, apps, movies, podcasts. I could not wait enough at office PC for back up so I cancelled it (by clicking the small x on right of status window). Back at home, I put the iphone on sync on my home Mac. It stayed on sync for more than 2 hours, stuck at "backing up". Eventually, I clicked the x and the phone went on to sync the music etc.

    Since upgrading to 2.0 I installed quite a lot of app (actually 16). Is this killing the back up time? Should I keep the phone on sync overnight and hope it will be done by morning?

    Also experiencing this...seems to happen after installing an app from the phone via the AppStore and then syncing. Currently I just hit the circle with the x when it does this and it skips backing up. Hopefully we will seea fix for this in 2.1.

    You know you can stop backup at any time?! All syncing will continue so you can do backup (still taking forever) whenever you have time and not when iTunes wants to ;-)

    Default Possible Fix

    Hey guys, I'm new to this forum. I usually just refer to a forum for answers and never register, but when I was experiencing the same problem you all are, I did a little trial and error research and I think I've found a solution:

    (Please Note This Fix Was Done On a Vaio Laptop running XP SP2 with iTunes 7.7.0.43)

    1.Open iTunes.exe

    2.Look in the upper left hand corner for "File"

    3.Scroll down to "Back Up to Disk" and select it.

    4.In the middle of the new tab-window which is visible you will see a checkbox which should be unchecked and reads "Only back up items added or changed since last backup"

    5. check the previously unchecked box.

    6. Click the button "Back Up"

    7.The Disk tray on your laptop or desktop should pop open, just close it without a disk in it.

    8.Nothing should happen

    Now, your iPhone (or iPod) will still do the backup every time you attempt to sync, however it should be significantly shorter in duration.

    Also, while I was typing this I called 1-800-My-APPLE and a representative named Teresa informed me there currently is NOT a way to completely disable this feature, which sucks.

    My sync time dropped from approximately 7 minutes every sync to about a minute and a half.

    Good luck guys,

    Scavallo

    P.S. Attempting to remove the backup by going to Edit->Preferences->Syncing-> Remove Backup DOES NOT WORK. In fact, it only will lengthen the sync process.

    I promise you, this was wishful thinking on the Mac Specialist's part. Apple Retail Employees are told NOTHING ahead of time.
