A year or so ago, the 500gb drive in my MacBook Pro was filling up because of my iTunes media. I got a Time Capsule for backup and also moved my library to it. Now my Time Capsule is nearly full so I had someone install a 1TB drive into my MacBook Pro.
I want to move the iTunes Media back onto the laptop.
I believe I have correctly followed the steps to move my iTunes library and media back to my MacBook, but it doesn't look like it has worked.
I did the following:
Went into iTunes preferences and set it to keep the media folder organized
In iTunes preferences checked the option to copy files added to the library
In iTunes Advanced clicked the Change button in the iTunes Media folder location pane and set it to the root director "\" on my laptop
Let it do its thing
When I look to see if there's a media folder, I can't see it. When I check info on a song or audio book, the media is still on the external drive or sometimes still in the old original folder on the MacBook Pro.
I have noticed that since "moving" my library, the files I just downloaded today have gone into a folder off the root. So it looks like the "move" is working for new files, but my old ones are sitting in one place on the laptop and another place on the external drive.
Most of all, I want to have everything in one place and off of the Time Capsule. I could use a second external drive that's connected to the Mac or just have it on the internal one.
Any ideas why I've got what I've got or what I can do to get to where I want to be?
