Tips Tricks & Warnings

  • There is a difference between transferring your iTunes library to a new PC, or simply transferring iTunes to a new internal or external hard drive. In the prior case, TuneSwift will make a copy of your iTunes library and save it, so you can restore the library to a new PC. In the latter case, to which the present article refers, your iTunes library will be literary moved from its original location to the new location on the new system hard drive or the external HDD. This means that, after the transfer, your iTunes library will no longer be found in its original location.
  • If you have problems with any of these steps, ask a question for more help, or post in the comments section below.
