Moving your iTunes music library

I’ve been loading up my iPod with video in preparation for a trip to the USA. Consequently I ran out of disk space on my laptop. As a temporary measure I wanted to move my entire iTunes music/video library to an external drive. Here’s the process that I followed:

  • Under the iTunes preferences Advanced tab I changed the iTunes music folder location.
  • I made sure that ‘Keep iTunes music folder organised’ was selected.
  • Then back in iTunes under Advanced I chose Consolidate Library. This then copied my entire library to the new location and updated iTunes accordingly.

This process doesn’t remove the files from the old location so you’ll have to do that manually.
