    I have a pretty large collection of movies/TV Shows, which I keep on an external hard drive. My 320GB drive seems like it is going to fail soon, so Im in a hurry to relocate them on my 640GB drive I just bought. Problem is, all of the items on the 320 were Option-Dropped into iTunes. Is there a way to move them all without having to redirect the iTunes "placeholder" to the file on the new drive one by one?

    Here is a little flow chart to make it easier to follow ...

    Option Dropped Into iTunes

    Need to move them to another drive

    Can I do this without having to redirect all the file placeholders in iTunes one at a time

    I believe as long as the path for each file is the same you will not have to relink each file. Make sure the new drive, at least after the transfer, has the same drive name and directory structure as the old one.
