Consolidate your iTunes library

Tech TricksIf you use iTunes as your primary music organiser, then no doubt you’re going to have a lot of files sitting around your computer in different places.


Often you’ll find that your library will be made up of a variety of different files from different hard drives and folders, which makes it annoying to actually copy all your content over to a different computer when the need arises.

Thankfully there’s a way to copy all of your distributed files and then save them under the default iTunes folder.

To do so, open up iTunes, then select File. Go to Library, then Organise Library. A pop up box will appear. You’ll want to click “consolidate files”, which will put copies of all media files used by iTunes in the iTunes media folder.

Once you’ve done that, hit OK. The computer will start copying files, and once it’s done, you’ll have all your media in one place.
