Deleting music on computer, keeping it on Zune

by Ms.Gadgettes / March 13, 2008 6:01 AM PDT


I'm wanting to backup all of my music on my computer and then delete it off of my hard drive. I have an 80gb Zune, will this remove it from the Zune the next time I sync?

When I first got my Zune I was playing around with it and had deleted some songs, but then next time I charged my batter and did a sync, they were gone, but now I don't remember exactly where I removed them from.

I'm just basically wanting to clear up space on my hard drive. I know I can go into the Zune software and the play the songs on their own, so I am assuming they are also taking up space on my computer. So can those be deleted out of the Zune software and note be deleted from the Zune?

Hopefully this makes sense!
