Move an iTunes library to just about anywhere
Authored by: tatilsever on Feb 06, '09 09:19:17AM

Wouldn't your method move the the destination for new music and the library file (which is usually a few MB, as it only holds info, but not the actual media files.) to a new location, but leave the old files where they were? I think a fifth step is necessary:

- File -> Library -> Consolidate Library...

iTunes 6 and 7 used to ask if I wanted to consolidate when I moved the music location, but I don't think iTunes 8 does. You have to tell it to do so.
