I have all of my music backed up on two external hard drives. The hard drive I used for iTunes quit today and I was wondering if there was a way I could change the path of the music files from one HDD to the other all at once rather than starting over putting all of it back in iTunes?

Since the HDD decided to call it quits, just rename the other one to the name of the iTunes one... if it was a perfect mirror, there shouldn't be an issue....
I think.

that worked. I wasn't aware you could rename a drive like that. I guess I have never tried.

Open Preferences in iTunes:
See where to change it?
EDIT: I see you got it. Nevermind.
