I have a query about how best to change the location of my music from an external drive (J:) to My Cloud using iTunes without losing my historical playcounts and playlists.
Looking around after having started, I don’t think I have opted for the best way…
…but what I have done is to copy the contents of my external drive into the shared music share of the cloud exactly as they are.
I was then going to change the location of the media folder (J:) to the My Cloud, assigning the share a letter and making it remount on booting up.
Where I expect I will fail is with the .xml and .itl library files. These files are not in the external (J:) drive, but are on the PC’s hard drive under C:\Users\Marc\Music\iTunes
Does that matter? Can they be linked up again?
Would doing it this work - would itunes be fooled by my switching of drives in this way?
Or should I go down the route of organising my library via that choice on iTunes?
