    I previously had it set not to manage files and folders for me, however I recently added a path on my Airdisk for that and went File > Library > Organize Library.

    So whilst that created a nice backup, what I didn't realize is that ofc now iTunes wants to play all my content from said AirDisk, which I'm not always connected to...

    Will I need to wipe and re-add?

    I want iTunes to constantly manage and update the library to the airdisk though, just not play it from there...

    Tips and help much appreciated... !

    So if I understand correctly, what you want is for all your media to stay on your local drive, but for there to be a backup copy on the airdisk that updates when you make changes?

    If that's correct, the best way I can think of is to just have the airdisk be a time machine backup, exclude everything but your iTunes folder, and that should do it.
