Any way to change location of game backups?

I have like 5 or 6 partitions over four hard drives on my PC. Unfortunately, all of my iTunes game app backups are on the main partition, drive C:, which has the OS (Windows 7) and it's in critical space condition (less than 10 percent). There's one place in the preferences in iTunes to show the location of where you want your iTunes media to be stored, but it seems to be only for music, not for backups and apps.

Is there anyway I can change this so that I can put my backups somewhere else like an external drive?

You could possibly move the backup to the different partition, and then make the original folder a shortcut to the new folder with the backup in it. Might work, might not.
