    I just added a second hard drive to my MacBook Pro, so now I have an 80GB SSD boot disk and a 500GB storage disk.

    I know that iTunes automatically backs up the iPhone to my User folder here:
    User/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/

    But I would like to change the path so it backs up to my 500GB internal drive. Is there any way to change the location of the backup directory? I wasn't able to find anything.

    Have you tried moving that directory to the external drive, replacing it with an alias or symbolic link?
