10.5: Show files that Time Machine does not backup
Authored by: Tricon on Apr 04, '08 09:43:45AM

Is "iTunes Music Library.xml" the only file that tracks my ratings? If so, I would hope that TM would back this up. I don't want to have to re-rate my music upon restore. Thoughts?

That XML file is merely a mirror of the file "iTunes Library" in the same folder, which does get backed up. You've nothing to worry about.

Actually I'm more concerned about ~/Music/iTunes/Album Artwork/Local as I don't want to re-add all the manually added artwork if I ever lose the disk with my iTunes collection on it...

I believe any albums you manually add get written to the tags in the MP3 File, and those that iTunes downloads automatically go into that folder.
