This quick guide is for windows systems where the backup option in iTunes is greyed out and not clickable.

To fix this we need to make a simple command line batch file.


Create a new text document with notepad and change the file extension from “.txt” to “.bat”, click Ok and right click your new batch file and select “edit”.

Inside the batch file add the following code and click “save”

“%Programfiles%\itunes\itunes.exe” /setPrefint DeviceBackupsDisabled 0

Now simply double click the .bat file and you should now have backup option enabled.
