iTunes Tips: Advance functions recommand
Used iTunes for many years and find it’s really a great tool to manange your music and movies. Users can change album artwork easily and can also get the artwork information automatically. I have to say that iTunes is the most advanced and best music management software in the world, not one of but only one.
Here I’d like to share some tips which can help to enjoy iTunes’s great functions easily.
1, How to change the location of iTunes media library including software APP?
Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced Media Library location (It can change the location of iTunes media library, but can not change the location whereiTunes APPs are, please check method 2 for changing the location of APPs )
Check "Keep iTunes media folder organized" (iTunes can organize files, according to artist / album / song organize folders automatically)
Check the "Copy files when you add information to the media library...." (you can delete the file after add files to the media library by simply drag and drop by one time, because iTunes will copy the file to the relative media library folder automatically. Check the setting and iTunes will automatically manage the files)
2, How to move iTunes library from C disc to another for backup before reinstall OS?
What should you prepare before reinstalling your windows system,? Let iTunes library say goodbye to the C disc.,
1, Run iTunes, press Ctrl + A to select all files, then press delete and select "Keep Files"(Very important!! Otherwise all files would be deleted completely).Do it to all Music, movies, apps, etc., till iTunes media media library is empty.
