Usage Experiences? Reliability? Run iTunes with Media & Backup folders on external drive (save SSD)? There are tons of articles for Windows (I use) and Mac about moving some of this heavy space eating stuff off my C drive / SSD. 2 key methods I see are (I'll post some links for them) : https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-7392 (Let me know if there's any other ways iTunes or its Folders/ Files have been moved that you're aware of) - Moving the Media folder to external drive and then SHIFT/ ALT + iTunes > Point it to different Path for Media Library (iTunes is aware of where things moved) - Moving the Mobile Sync / Backup folder to external drive and connect it via Symbolic Link/ Junctions (iTunes does not know and operates as if things are in original place with the mapping handled by OS/ File System redirection) Technically its simple and easily done, but.. - Experientially how has it worked for people using it for long? - Any issues through iTunes updates? - Issues on iTunes with USB connections? - Works fine over USB2 - Not so? - Better over USB3? - Etc? - What about when syncing/ using a FILLED UP iPhone 64/ 128? (Time/ performance) Is this a Reliable way to go? Since this manages my Phone (key), need it to be so. I just want to hear from - people who have done it, - been doing it / using it for long time and - mostly recent usage is also fine?.. Happy with it? Any Tips/ Advise?
