itunes external library

Does anyone here knows a good solution to host 200Gb of itunes, right now the music library is in the C drive but I've been thinking to move it to an external storage but don't know how Itunes will interact with that, as far as genius playlist, new purchases and etc....

You do not (very likely) have a 250 GB phone, so in order to sync properly, you are going to have to (or already) subdivide the music in to libraries. It would seem, so long as you were not trying to sync to an offline library, you could use external storage.

Other solutions:

1. If desktop, get / replace the second drive with a 2 TB drive.
2. If laptop, consider a 1 TB hard drive

With both 1 and 2, the music stays on board.

I have been considering an external 460GB ssd drive, isn't there a way for the music to stay in the cloud instead?
