Hey everybody, been a while since I posted here…
I’m trying to lay out my data backup plan and I’m trying to deal with iTunes. I have two laptops in the house, each running a seperate iTunes account and library. They are both connected to network via WiFi. I’m trying to determine the best way to store both of these libraries on the MBL. Is it possible to store two libraries and have them both accessible via the MBL?
I’ve read that I can transfer the music library to the MBL, then point iTunes to use that as the library instead of the local laptop library. Is this really a good idea? It seems that this strategy would create network lag when accessing the library in iTunes. Also, what if the MBL crashed for whatever reason? How would I keep a backup of the library to another drive on the network, say a USB hard drive connected to my router?
I feel that I’ve made this whole process difficult and confusing… please help!! Thanks!
