I just want to make sure we're clear, if we're on the same page. From
some of your replies, it seems as if you're talking about where iTunes
expects find find *it's* Music folder, which isn't what I'm talking
about. Perhaps I wasn't sufficiently clear.
My music isn't in the iTunes folder hierarchy at all. Nearly all the
music is on a partition on an external drive, organized in about 15 main
folders on the root directory of that drive, with lots of sub-folders
within each of the main folders, most of which have sub-sub-folders --
none of which has anything to do with where iTunes would normally store
music. So the locations of the iTunes Library or the iTunes Music/Media
folder have no bearing on this.
If I change the name of the external drive, or move the library to
another drive, I want iTunes to be able to find all the music (in all of
their relative sub- and sub-sub-folders).
Is that what you're addressing in your replies?
