Hi all.

I was wondering if someone has some advice/suggestions on this.

I want to move the podcast's in my iTunes library to another drive, to save some space, till I can get enough cash to get some bigger drives. Does anyone know if it is possible to do this? I thought about putting an alias in place in my iTunes library folder, but that didn't work (iTunes can't find the podcasts).

Thankyou one and all.

in prefrences just uncheck the "move files to the iTunes library" checkbox. Put the files where you want them and open them in iTunes.

I do this to have movies on one drive and everything else on another.

I think this is much more difficult with podcasts *I have noted issues in the past

Thankyou, for the information. If Podcasts are a problem, I can archive some movies off.

Love this site. It is so easy to get excellent help.

I had all my podcasts on an external hdd until i upgraded computers. It is done the way mentioned above. If you need any more detailed instructions just ask.
