This way, you get a hands-on feel for your library. This cannot be done in i Tunes 11, so in previous versions, go to File Show Duplicates and delete.
I store all my files into "My Music" folder on my desktop once they're downloaded.
You'll find the shared computers in the left-hand column of i Tunes.
Home Sharing does not transfer star ratings or playcounts for music.
However, you can easily offload your ever-expanding i Tunes library to an external hard drive by simply dragging and dropping it from its default location in Macintosh HD Advanced and in the i Tunes Media Folder Location box, click Change and point the software at the new location.
It's even possible to store the library on a networked drive, as long as it's mounted on your Mac.
