    I currently have a external hard-drive that is unusable for Time Machine because it's not formatted correctly.

    Normally, no big deal, I would just move all the stuff on the external to my mac, format the drive, and move everything back.

    Here's the problem - my entire itunes library is mapped back to the external drive in several folders.

    If I reformat, and move the folders back unchanged, will itunes "remember" the mapping? I'm worried about a library full of exclamation points.

    Thanks for any help!

    If the path to the files is the same, when you launch iTunes after the reformat, it will find them.
