ITunes For Mac :: Using ITunes Match Means Can Delete Files From Library On Laptop?

Jun 18, 2014

I need space on my computer - video files take up most space and I have a bunch of music videos in my iTunes library. My question is - 

If I upgrade to iTunes Match - would that mean I can then delete files on my computer in my iTunes library and still access them later?

ITunes For Mac :: Delete Files From Library

Jun 5, 2014

Bought an Air to replace a MacBook Pro. Want to clear out stuff before I sell it. If I delete files from the iTunes library, am I deleting them from the hard drive or the cloud? In other words, how do I clear the material from this machine without losing what I purchased?

Applications :: Can Automator Detect/delete Duplicate Files - Clean An Itunes Library?

Mar 8, 2009

Im new to the Mac operating system. I am proficient on a PC, but Macs have always captivated my attention. I finally gave into the Macbook. Anyways ---

The Automator application seems phenomenal in theory I just haven't learned all the ins and outs yet, but i see the concept that it was designed for (Jobs = Genius). Long story short I was streaming all of my music over from my PC and it got interrupted twice. I kept streaming to the same folder but it never prompted me to replace existing files of the same name. So I figured it would do it automatically. To my dismay that wasn't the case at all. I now have 9,000 songs and at least 4,000 of which are duplicates/Triplets. I wanted to know if there was some way to streamline the process of deleting and purging all these files out of my Music Folder/Itunes Library, Via the Automator program or any other program you know of.

MacBook Pro :: Transfer New ITunes Library From Old Laptop To New?

Jun 23, 2012

The problem is that when I transferred files over from my laptop and my desktop, the itunes library the new computer picked up was my old one on the desktop. So I need to change it. I was able to sync my iphone with the correct itunes, but would like to get it onto my new laptop. Any suggestions. I heard that I need to get rid of the library that is incorrect on the new computer. What is the best way to do that and then transfer the better one? Or is there another way!

I want to sync my entire iTunes library to a laptop. However, I don't need the laptop library to hold high quality versions due to space limitation. And I want to be able to make changes to the main library, and have the laptop's library sync to that too. Is there an app that does this? I have searched all over and it seems like there is nothing that does this.

ITunes :: Transfer Its Library From Laptop To External Drive Connected To Time Capsule?

Jun 26, 2012

I have a 1TB Time capsule, I would like to attach a USB drive to the Time Capsule and transfer my iTunes Library to it so I can run itunes from wifi. I am new to network stuff. My current iTunes library is on a USB drive velcro'd to the back of my Macbook - rather inconvenient, the USB port is loose. The music files are external but the library files with ratings/play counts are in the iTunes folder.

OS X :: Power Out Caused Itunes Library To Delete?

Feb 16, 2009

The other day the electricity to the house was turned off with Itunes running on my computer. Im running a G5 Mac OSX version 10.4.11 if that helps. When i turned the computer back on it read itunes library corrupt and the only option it gave was to press 'OK'.

Out of 8000 or so songs, 3000 remain in the library. There are some songs on the hard drive under 'Music' which is some of the missing songs but not sure if its all of them

My question is, is there any way possible way to restore my itunes library back to its state prior to the power out? restoring all playlists and everything!

Applications :: How To Delete Itunes Tracks Directly From Playlists And The Library

Jul 22, 2010

If I'm playing some music from a playlist, and I decide I want to delete it from my entire collection, I can't don't it easily. Deleting it right from the playlist doesn't remove it from my library. I have to go hunt it down in the main "Music" folder which is a pain in the ass, especially with multiple tracks. Is there some way, when looking at a track in a playlist, that I can delete it from my entire library and put it in the Trash?

Applications :: ITunes Library On NAS - How To Add Files From MBP

Feb 2, 2009

I have the vast majority of my iTunes library on a NAS device. When I first got my MBP I set the library's location to the folder that I had moved off one of the desktops to the NAS. Everything works fine.

However, it seems that the library location will reset itself to the local location on the MBP (possibly whenever I run iTunes when I'm not on this network). So, if I add files to the iTunes when I'm not on this network, they get placed into the local library.
