Consolidating library in itunes
Learn more The i Tunes Store is available on all your devices, which means you can buy that catchy song you just heard or rent that movie you’ve been meaning to see, anytime you want.
And since your entire library of music, movies, and TV shows lives in i Cloud, everything you buy is immediately available, no matter how you want to play it.
So, yes you'll have extra files still in the original folders which once you are happy the consolidation has worked you'll be in a position to delete. (i.e Tracks are moved to the i Tunes folders, but I have no idea where the originals came from.) 3.
If I can do this manually, would I simply drag the existing folders in the i Tunes folder, and relaunch i Tunes? Does i Tunes build its library based on the Location preference found under the Advance tab?
(i.e Tracks are moved to the i Tunes folders, but I have no idea where the originals came from.)* No, i Tunes doesn't support folder watching, if you move the files manually through Finder on a Mac or Windows Explorer on a PC then i Tunes will lose the location of the songs and display an exclamation mark against them in your library. If I can do this manually, would I simply drag the existing folders in the i Tunes folder, and relaunch i Tunes? I now have an internal secondary drive (or slave drive) where I want to have it all.
* You can't do it manually, i Tunes doesn't "see" any moves you make outside of the program. If I'm hearing you correctly, outside of the "Consolidate" command, all management of music in i Tunes is handled internally within i Tunes (as in importing music). If I change my folder to that drive, would consolidate my library copy everything to that drive, or to the original (Main hard drive)or the external drive?
