Ok- This is a basic question, but I didn’t see it answered in any of the related discussions:
I want to offload my iTunes library to WD My Book Live to save space. However, I see a couple of issues and have some questions:
1) If I change the location of my iTunes library, where will my laptop store new purchases? Should I just keep the default location on my laptop and copy all my old files (already seen video, etc.) to the network drive? Will iTunes try to re-download the missing material if I do that?
2) If I have the whole library on My Book Live, and I am traveling and not connected, what will happen when I sync my iPad/iPod? Will it wipe the music that is missing because it can’t see it?
My goal here is just to save space on my laptop. I really mainly listen/view media on my devices, but I do have to sync on the road for new downloads & purchases. This will be a massive overnight file transfer, so I’d like to have a plan before I start.
I appreciate any answers to the questions above. Anybody who can share what they do and general tips and strategies is really appreciated.
