Re: [BCAB] Tidying up iTunes library David Reynolds 20 Nov 2012 20:28 GMT
Sunil, You may want to consider a utility called Itunes Folder Watch. I can't find where I got it from at the moment, but a google search should get it for you. Once installed, you can get it to search specified folders for music, and it adds them to the itunes library. It takes a lot less time than trying to rebuild it manually. Best, David. -----Original Message----- From: Bcab [mailto:email@example.com] On Behalf Of Sunil Peck Sent: 20 November 2012 15:10 To: BCAB Discussion List Subject: [BCAB] Tidying up iTunes library Hi, I've shifted a lot of files around and deleted a lot of duplicate files in my documents since I first built an iTunes library on my computer. Because I manipulated the files in Finder as opposed to doing it from within iTunes, there are a lot of shortcuts in iTunes that point towards files that have either been moved or deleted. Because there are so many instances of this I thought I may as well delete my iTunes library and build a new one. I don't have any playlists and am not bothered about retaining play counts or anything. Is there an alternative to starting all over again, maybe a menu option I could activate from an options menu in iTunes? If not, what file to I need to delete? I'd like to avoid deleting any important system files.
