I backed up my phone on itunes and it took a lot of space on my laptop so I put the backup on an external drive, however, not knowing any better, I did not create any symlink. Is there any way I can restore the backup to my new phone from the external drive? Thank you for any help.

  • I'm assuming in light of your other question, that what you're asking here is for a way to do this without using iTunes? Or are you asking something else? You'll need to differentiate this from your other question. – Monomeeth Sep 9 '19 at 23:14
  • Apologies, what i’m Asking is. Is there a way to still restore the back up from the external drive. Is there any way I can “let iTunes know” where the backup folder is? I do have the backup folder on the hard drive and can move it back to the computer, however iTunes is not finding it when I try to restore a backup. – pat gusi Sep 10 '19 at 6:19
