Backup individual apps?

Is there any way to backup only specifically chosen apps to a PC? I've got loads of free apps from the itunes store that, whilst I don't want to delete them, I'm not bothered about backing them up as I didn't pay for them. I've got a handful of games that I have purchased and I'd rather just back them up than wait ages for loads of demos etc to be backed up...

Is it possible?

If you have syncd to your PC they will be in the directory path folder :- Music>>iTunes>>iTunes Media>>Mobile Applications.
You can just copy the ones you want out of that folder to a backup folder.

Ok, but if I do a complete backup, then delete the ones I don't require on the PC, will it not just rebackup every app again when I next buy an individual app that I'd like to backup?

All apps purchased on iTunes on your PC will be in the Mobile Applications folder & any apps bought on your iPad/iPhone & still on there at the time of a sync will be copied to that folder aswell.

If you delete them from the PC folder & then sync a device that still has them on then yes they will be recopied to the PC folder.
