    Moving files to External HD
    Hello all,

    I bought my macbook about a month ago now, and I can't put it down. I'm definately a mac user now.

    Please bear with me on this question.

    I was wondering if I was to buy an external HD and move all my music files to that HD would all my data (album art) be lost in iTunes? Some of the album work was download through iTunes however some was added manually by myself.

    I just did this exact thing... I only moved the music folder. I left the actual database files in the orignal location.

    So did you have to re-add all the album art?
