Is there a way to setp the Iphone 5 to backup to wdmycloud without going through ITunes- apologies if this is very basic question for most.
The device back ups are stored in a separate folder:
You would create a symbolic link to a folder on the NAS. Look up mklink in a command prompt for instructions (you will have first to delete the existing Backup folder). For example:
mklink /d “C:\Users\MyUsername\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup” “\MyNAS\MyShare\MyiPhoneBackup”
You would instruct iTunes to backup your iPhone to the “computer” instead of iCloud. When you sync, you will put the backup on the NAS following the symlink.
I don’t think there is a way to directly sync the iPhone to the NAS without going through the computer.
