Does anybody know how to change the backup directory of iOS devices backups? I am running out of space on one drive and I have spare on the other. I tried installing iTunes on the other drive but the backups still go to the main drive with little space..

I'm not sure, but I think the backups are in the same folder as your media so you would have to move everything over by changing the iTunes Media Folder location in the preferences.

I know the backups folder is default in AppData on Windows which is some weird hidden folder on Windows but it cant be moved..

Have a look in Edit/Preferences/Advanced.

Not sure if it's what you want exactly but could still free up some space that way..
