How can i backup my iPod Touch 4g and save my apps onto a new hard drive without having to save onto the current hard drive first?

How can i backup my iPod Touch 4g and save my apps onto a new hard drive without having to save onto the current hard drive first?
My current hard drive is filled up and i'm going to buy a new, bigger hard drive. How can i change the save and backup destination for iTunes so i can backup and transfer my purchases(apps) onto the new hard drive? Without having to backup and save my apps onto the current hard drive because there's no space left on it. Thanks!

  • How can i backup my ipod touch's data to another drive safely?

    Ok here is my current situation. I have on my C: drive about 20% of space remaining, it was almost 10% yesterday.. The biggest item I know of its the back-up data for my Ipod touch 32 gig 4th gen. Now i know there is a method of sort of linking so it sees another drive as C: but I have not tried that at all.
    I have a nice External HD as well as another internal drive i can copy the data to but that is where i need some more info.
    first of all is it possible to copy the data files from C: to another drive, then delete the data on C: till it is needed for itunes?
    Second, if so what files are the ones needed and what steps should i do?
    As an alternate question by the way, is it still not possible to choose where to save the backup data in itunes?

  • How can I backup my Ipod touch when it's locked?

    Hello,
    My IPod touchscreen won't work, but I'm getting a new one with warranty. I can turn the IPod on but I can't "Slide To Unlock" because it wont sense touch.
    I want to backup all my data/files so I can put it back on the new one. I tried to sync it on ITunes but apparently you need to unlock the device. Any possible way I can backup my IPod without unlocking it? I use windows 7 to sync it.
    Please answer ASAP.
    Thank you.

    No, not to iTunes. However, if you have iCloud backup turned on in Settings.iCloud>Storage and Backup it will automatically backup once be day when connected to a charging source if the iPod has an internet connection.
    Then you can restore from that iCloud backup.

  • How can I get my ipod touch to turn on or to charge?

    How can I get my ipod touch to turn on or charge?

    First, try a system reset.  It cures many ills and it's quick, easy and harmless...
    Hold down the on/off switch and the Home button simultaneously until the screen blacks out or you see the Apple logo.  Ignore the "Slide to power off" text if it appears.  You will not lose any apps, data, music, movies, settings, etc.
    If the Reset doesn't work, try a Restore.  Note that it's nowhere near as quick as a Reset.  Connect via cable to the computer that you use for sync.  From iTunes, select the iPad/iPod and then select the Summary tab.  Follow directions for Restore and be sure to say "yes" to the backup.  You will be warned that all data (apps, music, movies, etc.) will be erased but, as the Restore finishes, you will be asked if you wish the contents of the backup to be copied to the iPad/iPod.  Again, say "yes."
    At the end of the basic Restore, you will be asked if you wish to sync the iPad/iPod.  As before, say "yes."  Note that that sync selection will disappear and the Restore will end if you do not respond within a reasonable time.  If that happens, only the apps that are part of the IOS will appear on your device.  Corrective action is simple -  choose manual "Sync" from the bottom right of iTunes.
    If you're unable to do the Restore, go into Recovery Mode per the instructions here.

    Connect the iOS device to your computer and restore via iTunes. Place the iOS device in Recovery Mode if necessary to allow the restore.
    If recovery mode does not work try DFU mode.

  • How can I fix my iPod touch while it's plugged in I can go on the Internet but when I unplug it and try to go on the Internet the iPod will turn off

    How can I fix my iPod touch. It will allow me to go on the Internet while it's plugged in but when I take it off the charger and go on the Internet the iPod will shut off. I have tried to reboot the iPod but it still does it.

    Try:
    - A reset. Nothing is lost
    Reset iPod touch: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.
    All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.
    - Restore from backup
    - Restore to factory settings/new iPod
    If you still have the problem that indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

    You should probably disable the autosync functionality first by going to Edit -> Preferences, clicking the Devices tab, and enabilng the prevent iPods,iPhones, and iPads from automatically syncing option.
    Next, authorize the new computer with your iTunes Account.  In iTunes, choose Store -> Authorize This Computer and enter in the correct credentials.
    If possible, either copy a backup file from your old computer to your new one or create a new backup of your iPod in iTunes before letting it sync.  To do this, right->click on your iPod Touch from under the Devices section in the left hand pane of iTunes and choose Backup. You might also want to take a look at this article to see what it all included in the backup.
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1766
    Now onto synced content such as music, videos, photos, etc.  For iTunes purchases you can copy them back into iTunes by choosing File -> Transfer Purchases.  For all other nonpurchased iTunes content, see this older post from another forum member Zevoneer covering different software availbable to assist you with this task.
    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2452022?start=0&tstart=0
    Once the backup has been made and all other synced content such as music, videos, and photos are back in your iTunes library, restore your iPod from that backup you made earlier.  Here is more on backing up and restoring your iPod.

  • How can I reformat my ipod touch for mac

    How can I reformat my ipod touch for mac I used to have a PC I've all ready tried to restore several times but it won't work. What can i do?

    Just plug it into the mac, and do a restore. Make sure you are plugging the ipod into a usb 2.0 port and not through a keyboard or usb hub. Also if itunes offers to use a backup during the restore, don't use it.

    The other responder gave you a program that will transfer stuff from your iPod to your new computer.  You can transfer iTunes purchaces to your new computer by:

    After you move your stuff to your new computer you will have to let iTunes erase your iPod and then sync with the stuff that is now in your iTunes library.  You will loose app data though.
