    Here’s the scenario that I’d like to make happen, but don’t know how:

    I have 2 iphones (my wife’s and mine), one MacBook Pro, and an external drive that I’ll use for anything iTunes (music, video, apps). I plan to create two user accounts on the MBP (one for her and one for me).

    How do I point to the external drive and still retain any iTunes settings for playlists, songs, iPhone backups, etc. for each user? Also, what will happen if I purchase a song on my iPhone? Will it upload it to the external? The next time my wife logs on, will it display in iTunes (under her account)?

    Basically I want the external to house the media files, but each of our MBP user accounts should house iTunes settings (playlists, backup settings, etc.).

    A huge thanks for any help.
