Thinking of moving my Mobile Sync folder to an ext drive, any gotchas?

Is the Mobile Sync folder in ~/Library/Application Support only accessed when you are syncing your iPhone to your Mac when connecting them with a cable? I'm thinking of moving this folder to an external drive to make room on my internal. I know how to do it (symbolic link), just not sure if I'm correctly understanding how the folder is used. I have Wifi sync off and iCloud Backup enabled; only rarely do I do a full backup by cabling the phone to my MBP. TIA for any advice!

Well, I went & did it. Connected my phone and nothing blew up – so I guess I'll see what happens.

I might as well put in a plug for a great little utility to create a symbolic link easily (no Terminal commands required): [www.macupdate.com]
