iTunes troubles locating music on SSD

    Hello all,

    I have a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014) and have recently purchased a Transcend JetDrive Lite 360 128GB, which fits very nicely in to the SDXC port, as extra hard drive space. I thought I'd fill this drive with a fair chunk of my music to free up space, so copied over 120ishGB of artist folders over then deleted the originals from the mac drive.

    When playing these copied songs from iTunes it sometimes finds it and sometimes doesn't for certain songs, somewhat randomly. It gave me the option when first selecting a song after copying to locate other missing files from the same location but obviously didn't do the complete job.

    Does anyone know how to get iTunes to locate all the tracks on an SSD drive (which is always connected) holistically, without having to manually locate them on certain songs?

    Thanks in advance.

    When you copied over the Library did you also use the option key+open iTunes to point to the new Library?
