    Hi all

    I am moving to OSX from Windows. Don't want to use Migration Assistant until I have moved iTunes over, use MA for small items.

    Can I:

    1. Install iTunes on rMBP (unless its already there as I haven't opened it yet)
    2. Add my Apple ID
    3. Shut iTunes down, copy iTunes folder from PC external hard drive to same location on rMBP
    4. Will that retain my existing sync settings?
    5. Start iTunes, run sync, hoping that will copy purchases to rMBP, sync, which should not change anything on iPhone/iPad except lose bookmarks which is ok.
    6. Contacts, iMessage history etc will all move from iDevice to new iTunes?

    Tks to all who feedback
