If your Mac's hard drive is getting full, you can move your entire i Tunes library to an external hard drive to free up space.
After decades of digital music, it's not unlikely if you've amassed quite the collection of music on your computer's hard drive.
This process could take upwards of an hour or two, depending on how much data stored in your i Tunes library.
Once you've transferred a copy of your i Tunes library onto an external hard drive, you will need to set a new path for the i Tunes app by redirecting it to search the external hard drive for content, rather than your local drive.
My i Tunes Library has folders full of playlists for family, friends, and others along with mixtapes both natively digital and those I’ve reconstructed from actual cassettes.
All Macs come with i Tunes preinstalled and a Windows version is also available free of charge.
i Tunes uses i Tunes library files and your i Tunes Media folder to organize and store your media.
Your i Tunes library files track the media you add to i Tunes, how you've organized it, and other information such as playlists.
Your i Tunes library is a database that i Tunes uses to organize your media.
It's made up of all of the music and other content that you add to i Tunes.
