Moving iTunes media folder
It turns out that my son loaded all of his music on my SSD instead of the data drive, meaning that there is very little space on the SSD. I would like to move the iTunes library to the data drive.
I found this article: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1449
and I started following the steps. In step 11, it says to go to File > Library > Organize Library, then Consolidate files to move the files to the new location.
I tried that in his account and it says
"Copying files failed, because you don't have permission to change your iTunes Media folder or a folder within in it."
I immediately figured that was because his User Account is not an Administrator account. So I made him an Administrator and tried the same thing. Same result.
What is the problem?

Log in using an administrator account.
Locate your iTunes Media folder. If you are not sure where your iTunes Media folder is located, launch iTunes, open Preferences from the iTunes Menu and click Advanced. This will show you where the iTunes Media folder is located.
Select the iTunes Media folder.
From the File menu, choose Get Info.
Click the disclosure triangle to open the Ownership and Permissions section of the Info window.
Set the permissions as follows (you may be prompted to enter an administrator account password):
Owner: access Read & Write
Group: access Read Only
Others: access Read Only
Click the "Apply to enclosed items" button.
Close the Get Info window.
