Is it possible to move the music stored in itunes to an unused partition on a laptop? If so how is best to do so? the reason is the main directory C: is nearly full but there is a rarely used default partition D: on the HDD which would be a better place to store the music and free up some HDD space Or alternatively can itunes point at NAS and can music etc (some purchases from itunes) be moved to a new HDD?

Hi Horny mate

I did mine recently and moved the library to my external hard drive , im fairly sure its the same with just moving to another part of your internal hard drive.

Its the "consolidate library" function within itunes in the tab advanced. I'd just do a bit of research first on ilounge forum as i did and to be honest was fairly easy and stressless although i did get myself a bit worked up about doing it as my library is 13000 strong.

I couldnt explain the steps to you thats why i suggest just having a look on ilounge as there is a step by step there.I think its called moving your itunes library. Its quite painless mate:smashin:

I free'd up loads of space on my c drive as its all now on my external HD. I think that itunes can consolidate to any drive ("point") but dont specifically know about NAS.

Hope this helps

Have you a link to the article in ilounge? i need to do some cable running and get the NAS drive up and running i think as the second partition isnt big enough to match the Ipod capacity (30GB)
