I have a 16gb ipod touch 2g, with about 7.9 gb remaining. What's the deal?
Exactly how long is too long?
Hahaha.....You're funny. Well, I mean it didn't take as long as it did before. Before, it took a couple of minutes. Now,.... at least 7-8 minutes. I don't really count. I estimate.
Is it the backup that is taking the longest?
I also find it takes 4-6 minutes to backup the iPod touch to iTunes on PC. Further, I started a thread some time ago about the "other" category (which I understand to be OS and other fairly critical files) being missing on the status bar in the sync window on the computer when connected to iTunes for backup. It came back for a while but has now disappeared again. I wonder if this is the cause of the slow backup and aside from rebooting the iPod touch what can be done about it?
Nevertheless, the iPod touch does eventually backup and sync so I don't think I have a big problem. What thoughts does anyone have?
My iPod Touch takes time to back up too! Before it would only take around 2 minutes and now it's like 7!
The OS isn't included as part of the "Other" - that's all stored on another much tinier partition of the drive that isn't normally accessible/viewable to the average user (unless you're jailbroken and have access to the system files). "Other" includes things like album art, contacts, calendars, your Safari history and cache, etc.
OK thanks for that information. However, what could be the explanation for the "other" partition to disappear from the contents bar at the bottom of the iTunes sync page. I do have pictures, contacts, etc stored on the iPod touch. Just trying to understand it, Thanks
