    I have 2 x 1TB WD External Hard drives which hold all my audio/video content. One of these is full and this is the one that is located in the iTunes Music Folder Location. If I change this path to a path on the other drive which has space, is it going to mess up what I already have in my tunes library? I have keep iTunes organised and copy to iTunes music folder both unticked.

    My problem is when I'm downloading new content from iTunes, I'm going to run into issues as there's no more room!

    I'd move most of the other stuff off the one that is full to the one that is empty and re-add it. iTunes should keep the metadata stored correctly. I hope this helps.

    The intent of that was to keep from having to mess around with your library.

    So leave the path the way it is and then copy the 1TB from 1 to the other and then re-add? think I gotcha
