    Using windows:

    I have all my music on my F drive. I imported all that music when I set up itunes. Every now and then when I added a cd to itunes I forgot to link it to my F drive.

    So I have been installing media to my ssd which I don't want to fill with music. I've now set itunes to rip cd's into my f drive but how do I move the ones I have already done?

    Even though I clicked copy files over they are not on my f drive. So If I delete the music folder from my c drive the links no longer work.

    Any ideas how I fix this without starting again with the files I mistakenly ripped to the C drive?

    :)

    Thanks for that, like a numpty my problem was not being able to find File and organise library. I had to unhide the menu bar, doh!

    Thanks again :)

    Right tried it and consolidated the files which transfers over to my f drive From c drive. When I look though lots of my apps are missing from mobile data in comparison to the file still on my c drive.

    One of those apps is avhd player. So I'm reluctant to delete the iTunes folder in case I lose this program as its been removed from iTunes.

    I'm half tempted to wipe iTunes and start again but would i lose these apps?

    I've not used avhd player so not sure but - if you downloaded them via an iPhone or iPad, you can just re-download them via your purchased section (in app store) and it should re-sync to the new itunes lib when you connect the device.

    Worth a try, just back up the old files incase.

    Cheers, when you back up itunes to another drive before wiping etc I take it the folder you back up is the itunes media file and mobile applications?
