    Hi
    Will itunes 10.5.2 take care of all my backing up automatically? I used to back up my itunes library myself but the option seems to be gone in 10.5 version.
    What should I be doing? Do I now have to pay apple to do my backing up?
    Cheers G.

    The Back Up Library option in iTunes creates a "metadata-only" backup - which means that it backs up your ratings, playlists, etc. that are stored within iTunes. It does NOT back up your songs, videos, podcasts, and other content. You can still do this manually, by copying the iTunes Library.itl file.
