iTunes music folder help ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok so all of my iTunes music that i have purchased is being saved to my main computers hdd and i want to to save onto my external hard drive. Can i simply drag and drop the iTunes music folder into my external hard drive and it will continue to put the music in there or will it mess everything up ?

Thanks

Erm, i think it might mess up / just not play in iTunes.

You'll need to go into settings in iTunes, and tell the program to look in the ext. drive's music folder to find the music. You will also need to change the location in which the songs you download are saved to, again by scooting through the iTunes settings.

If you just drag the folder over to your new drive, iTunes will still be looking in the same old place for the music files, but wont be finding them, since you moved them.

If/when you do move the current folder, be sure to delete the entries from iTunes, and re-add the songs into iTunes from the new location..


Think that should do it.. Anything else?
