If someone could please point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated. My iPhone backup takes around an hour! I'm only using like 6 gigs on it, and I don't know why it would take so long...I have heard tips on how to speed it up, but some said they didn't work on Macs (one in sig) or that they didn't work at all. I think i have all the apps on my iPhone on my MBP, so I don't see how that would be a problem (I got the computer recently and transferred all purchases). I heard the 'Disable Sending Reports to Apple' thing didn't work on Macs....so anyway can anyone share their tips on how to make it faster? I have lost backups before, so I really like to keep everything backed up since things can go wrong fairly easily with hacked iPhones. It's a 3G. PS, please don't tell me that there are enough threads on this. If you do, please show me one that works with iTunes 9 on Macs.
