    My MBP is running out of space and since I have a external drive that right now I don't use I'd like to move part of my podcasts library in the external HD.
    I have already copied the podcasts from the iTunes folder in my Mac to the External Drive and I have deleted the local copies.

    Now, I tried to add them to the library (File > Add to Library) but in this way it copies the file in my local hard drive. How can I keep the files in the external drive but make them accessible from iTunes like they were locally stored?


    Thanks.

    update:
    in preferences >advanced I can tell itunes not to import when I add to the library and in this way I can keep my podcasts in the external drive but when I download a new one it is saved in my local HD. How can I tell iTunes to save it in the external drive?


    THANKS

    any ideas?
    it is also fine if I need to use a third-party application.
    No PowerTunes. I tried it and I don't like. I'm looking for something that integrates with iTunes itself.


    Thanks
