    My iTunes library is on an external 320GB Lacie drive and I have reached capacity. I have purchased an additional 320GB Lacie drive and am needing to split out my library amongst both HDD's. How can I get all of the content in my TV shows folder onto the new drive and get iTunes to recognize it?

    Move the items in Finder and replace them in the original folder with aliases of the same name(s).

    Turn off the auto-adding of items to the iTunes library in iTunes preferences then just store them wherever you want and add them it iTunes: they'll stay where they are but get added to the iTunes database...

    Use disk utility to setup a raid and have OSX look at both drives as one 640Gb drive. I have leopard, but pretty sure you can do this in Tiger.

    Whilst this is a nice idea would this not delete the existing 320Gb of data?

    I have the same question. I would love to setup a RAID. Can I do it without losing my data?
