    Question Using I-Tunes from a portable hard drive
    I have an I-mac and keep my I-Tunes music on a portable hard drive. When I want to create a play list, I am still loading the music back to my hard drive! Is there a solution whereby I don't duplicate the music and "clog" my hard drive?

    Specs:
    Mac Mini i5 (2014 High Sierra), iPhone X, Apple Watch, iPad Pro 12.9, AppleTV (4)
    A playlist id just a collection of 'pointers' to the original files.

    How do you know they are being copied to your iMac hard disk?

    You just need to change the default location of your iTunes library. Read this how to:
