(You can read a lot more about that topic in my ebook "Get Organized: How to Clean Up Your Messy Digital Life" available via Ganxy and other ebook retailers.) I take this premise very seriously.
Copying Your Consolidated i Tunes Library to External Storage Now that all media files are in your i Tunes library folder, you can copy it to an external storage device such as a USB portable hard drive. If you haven't changed the default location of the main i Tunes folder, use the following default path to navigate to your i Tunes library: - Windows 8, 7 or Vista: \Users\user profile name\My Music\- Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\user profile name\My Documents\My Music\ 2.Go to your new computer and click the “Store” tab and then “Authorize Computer.” Enter the same Apple ID and turn on Home Sharing on this computer.A menu will appear with different media types, like “Books” and “Music.” Click the type of media that you want to share and then select “Import.” This completes the transfer.As much as I am an organized person, my i Tunes library is a disaster. Some time around 2004, I started using i Tunes to copy music I had on disc.Or at least it was, until I decided to write this article. It was part of a grand plan to get rid of most of my physical media.
