    Hey guys i know the 2.1 firmware fixes the slow backup speed but did anyone anticipate the backup finishing in under a minute?:D

    I'm doing my first 2.1 backup right now and it's taking forever... As long if not longer than before!

    You'd better Restore it.

    After restoring, my 1st backup was like 25-30sec long (I have 40apps installed). Crazy! :eek: Before it was 1h minimum.

    The next backups took 5sec...

    I'm having the same trouble... it's taking FOREVER to do the initial backup... it even stopped one time and wouldn't go any further!

    does that mean i should restore? is that just clearing my iphone and re-synching everything?

    Ok, my backups are now taking about 10 seconds for around 60 apps. I'm happy.

    my backups went from an overnight process (5+ hours) to about 12 minutes now with 2.1. Though i would love a backup under 5 minutes, i think 12 minutes is somewhat acceptable considering the number of apps i have on my phone. just as importantly though, installing and removing apps via itunes with 2.1 is a mere few seconds. That by itself is awesome!!!

    Oh, good question, no. I just unplugged and re-plugged and re-synched. Just did it again, 24 seconds for the backup portion of the program.

    My first backup took a while too, but every backup after that was pretty quick.

    People are so hasty to do restores, just chill out and see if there are other solutions.

    2.0.2 = 3 hours. +
    2.1 = about 5 seconds literally. Period.

    Most of the time...
    My previous backups would range from 30min to 6 hours (or longer).
    I was careful to make sure when I synced I would only do it when I knew i wouldn't need my phone, so that I wouldnt have to interrupt it.

    Before 2.1 was less than a minute to backup.

    Now after 2.1 it takes only seconds to backup.

    Does it keep more than one backup on file. If so, where are they so you can delete them.

    under the preferences for iTunes, go to "devices"...

    If there are multiple backups there (I have 3, each from a different restore) they will be listed there, and you have the ability to delete them if you would like.

    Same thing was happening to me. The first time I quit the Back Up, then I tried again and it took a while, but finally finished. Now Back Ups are really fast, less than a minute.

    well my initial backup after the upgrade to 2.1 was about 12 minutes. all subsequent backups after installing/removing apps several times has been under a minute!!!

    awesome, however i'm installing a massive dictionary app, and i'll see how the backup handles it :)
