    Please forgive me if this has been posted before. I was just confused as to how to word the search correctly so that I get the right answers.

    Okay here's the thing: I (not so long ago) copied my entire itunes library to my external hard drive. Now I have updated my itunes library on my powerbook, and want to make sure that I back up the new songs/albums I have. The problem with this is that I have always found that when I drag the itunes folder from my powerbook to the itunes folder on my external drive, it asks to 'replace the itunes music folder'. I don't want this as there are some albums that I have stored in my folder but not on my itunes library and still want to keep them stored.

    Is there any way that I could just keep adding to the 'existing' itunes folder on my external drive?

    Sorry if the wording is complicated...

    Any help would be great,

    Thanks

    If you drag the group of individual files (as opposed to the folder containing them) everything should work.
