    Rebuilding Comp. How to save Itunes Lib.
    Hello,
    I am reseting everything on this mac, and re-building from the ashes as it were. However, the only thing that I can not re-install or find again is my Itunes library, much of which I no longer have the CD's to anymore.

    1. Now... I see that I can export library, and I have done so, and it is a .xml file that is 1.7mb large. Now is this ALL My music, and when I re-install itunes will this file simply have my music on so I can listen again?

    2. I can also back up to disk, will this save all my music and let me have ALL My music when I re-install itunes?

    Thanks in advance for all your help!!
    Steve

    Check your Itunes folder, found in your music folder by default. That contains all your track, album art etc, that's what I use when i reformat my Mac.
