So I just followed a guide as posted to me in an earlier thread. I copied the entire music folder from my old library onto the local drive and changed the iTunes folder location of the library in preferences. It began updating itself and then asked halfway whether I'd like to continue using iTunes to keep my music organised. Of course, I said yes. For some reason half my collection now has exclamation marks next to the songs saying it doesn't know where the file is, although it is all in there. I can't go through over 30GB of files pointing iTunes in the right direction! Any idea what I should do. It has kept my metadata intact. Shall I copy the library.xml file and then delete the entire music collection. The point it back at the external drive and then move the music by hitting consolidate to the new local hard disk?? Literally shaking with panic.... Thanks all.
