    So, I had everything on my Drobo and outgrew that so I bought a DroboPro. Copied everything over to the DroboPro.

    Went to iTunes and changed my library location to:

    DroboPro -> iTunes

    It updated my library for a few minutes, but all the files still pointed to the ones on the original Drobo.

    So I went to my user folder -> Music -> iTunes and saw two files:

    iTunes Library
    iTunes Music Library.xml

    The first is un-readable code, the second is just XML so I did a find and replace for:

    <key>Location</key><string>file://localhost/Volumes/Drobo/Music/
    to
    <key>Location</key><string>file://localhost/Volumes/DroboPro/iTunes/

    But when I open iTunes, it's still looking for the files on the original Drobo.

    What do I do?

    Also, I wanted to try and restore the .xml file back to the original but for some reason Time Machine doesn't seem to back that up. Why wouldn't it back that up?
