    Heya gang.

    So I picked up a new external Lacie 2 TB to replace my old Lacie 500 GB for my Mini. Since I have all my iTunes library and family photo's / videos on the 500 GB, starting to bump up against space issues - so figured the 2 TB would help !

    Could use some advice -

    How would I copy my iTunes library from one external hard drive to another external hard drive ?

    What I've done to move the iTunes library is just drag and drop the iTunes folder to the new HD, and the next time you start iTunes hold down option. That will give you the ability to choose a library, select the copy on your new drive and you should be good.

    Sounds easy - thanks ! I'll do a backup before I take the plunge just in case. :)
