"There is not enough space on the Mac, so I can't back up iPhone data to it. Is it possible to back up the iPhone to a flash drive? I have used the iPhone for a while, but I have never done a backup. I need an automatic backup method. Can anyone relieve my confusion? Thanks."
The longer the iPhone is used, the more storage space will be consumed on the iPhone. In order to free up more space, people will delete some unnecessary files. Of course, you can use iTunes or iCloud to back up files, but it is not easy to extract specific data from iTunes or iCloud. You can only access the files you need by restoring the device. Why don't you choose to backup iPhone files to a flash drive? This is a way out of trouble. To this end, this user guide will introduce some methods for backing up iPhone content to a flash drive.

For Mac user:
- Click the "Search" icon in the menu bar.
- Enter the following "~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/" in the search box. Then tap Return.
For Windows user:
- Click in order to find a specific folder.
