Data on a portable drive is MUCH less safe than data on internal drive. Such external drives tend to fail much more often. So ONLY do this if you have a good backup of all that music you don't want to lose.
My Itunes naturally is storing everything onto my computer. (XP3)80gig.
I have discovered that ITunes allows me to change the file location and that I can access my portable harddrive which is 500 gig. Is there an easy way to get everything from my computer onto the portable harddrive wherein ITunes accesses the portable harddrive instead of my computer? If I simply use preferences in ITunes and change the storage area, will it also put everything that is on my computer there also wherein I can delete everything or do I have to manually do this. Hope I am making my self clear on this.
Thanks for any help.
