so i meant to place my bloated music library on an external (aka splitting it) but keep the rest of itunes on my mba's ssd. but i goofed. (i blame my daddy brain) i forgot to uncheck the two boxes in advanced preferences before restarting itunes with the option key depressed & indicating that the music would be on the external. so now, itunes won't open unless the external is plugged in. so that i don't cause any more digital mayhem, could someone please advise me on the simplest way to get the intended result of keeping my music on an external but still be able to operate/open itunes without having to connect the external? CHEERS!!!
