View Full Version : Consolidate problem, not enough space?

Oct 29, 2009, 03:05 AM
I completely flummoxed here....
And even a Google doesnt seem to find this problem at all.

I have had my Itunes library on a external 100gb drive until now, but i just got a new 1Tb drive and now want to move the itunes library back onto Mac's own drive now i made room for it.

I have a itunes media total of about 16gb and now my Mac HD has 125gb free space yet when i try the option to "consolidate library" to move it, i just get a an error saying "not enough space on Mac HD" ??

I rebooted 3-4 times, i ran disk permissions etc i done all i can think of, but still silly Itunes 9 claims that there isnt any space when theres about 10times what it needs?

I cant find this error online anywhere :-(

Any ideas, before i end up completely manually rebuilding a new library and wasted a few hours of my life to Apples Bugs..?

Don't you have to copy the files to the internal hd first and then consolidate library?
