I'm about to do a clean slate upgrade from Snow Leopard to Mavericks. Just wondering how I pull my current iTunes library into my future OSX? I've got far more music in my HD catalog than I want in my iTunes library (I only use iTunes to manage my iPhone content), but I want a seamless transition when I push into Mavericks.

I'm guessing it's easy, but i've never had to do this before, nor did I find the solution in a search. Maybe my keywording is wrong.

Any advice to get from A to B would be much appreciated.
QUOTE Thanks

As you are going to backup your Mac before the upgrade(you are aren't you?), you can just drag the iTunes Library folder on to your Mac after the upgrade.

Backup completed. The iTunes library is an XML file?
