    Every time i connect my ipod touch to itunes, and it syncs, it also backs up. it takes an extremely long time to do this, so i usually cancel it right away. however sometimes itunes freezes or things screw up or whatever. the backing up is just really annoying. and i don't know what it is even backing up!!! is there a way to make the back up feature manual, so it won't do it automatically. and also can someone please tell me what the point is of the back up. thanks

    Apple has acknowledged this in their support forums and they are supposedly working on a fix since it seems the new iTunes 7.7 isn't using USB speeds to the fullest and their backup routine is also screwed, with full backups every time instead of just backing up what's changed.
