Speed up sync sessions

Speed up sync sessions

My iPhone is cluttered with stuff, I’m the first to admit it, so is my machine. If I could find a few extra hours in a day I would take the steps to start cleaning unused files, but I don’t have the time.

Syncing my iPhone now takes way too long and it slows my machine down while it’s syncing. The process seems to take forever.
Enter DigiDNA‘s BackOff. This handy, free software will disable backups, so that you can quickly sync your iPhone with iTunes. Use at your discretion, because it STOPS backing up.

It works great in my case, because I sync and backup my phone every night. During the day I like to sync it to charge it and to update new podcast episodes. This is the perfect way to speed up those syncs.

Just don’t forget to back up your device regularly. The one time you don’t will be the one time you wish you had.

BackOff supports iPhone V1, 3G, 3G S & iPod Touch V1, V2 and V3. Get it here.

Hat tip to Lifehacker and MacWorld for drawing our attention to BackOff.
