    Hello,

    would it be a good idea to exclude iTunes library from TimeMachine back up or will I risk anything doing so?

    Is there anything else I could exclude from the backups without jeopardizing the value of the backup?

    Please advise,

    Thanks,
    daniele

    Unless your entire library is backed up somewhere else or 100% purchased through iTunes, I'd back it up.

    There's no way in hell I'd rip 100+ CDs again, I backup everything.

    You wouldn't backup your iTunes. Simple as that.
    If your computer crashed and you restored, iTunes would be empty.
