    I have written a small Windows program called "iPhone Backup Switch". The program will allow you to enable and disable the iPhone backup feature in iTunes. I have tested it pretty well in Windows XP and VISTA. There is a backup feature that will backup the iTunes configuration and let you restore a previous version, if something goes wrong. Comes complete with installer and uninstaller.

Once it is done, follow the wizard that will tell you how to back up all the files properly. Using the software you can easily create a backup file which contains all the SMS messages which were in your inbox or achieved.

    To stop the backup, all you need to do is hit the little x beside the process bar. The backup will stop and syncing will continue!
