I have used Setup Assistant from my last Time Capsule backup on my old iMac to start my new iMac. The new iMac has a 256 GB SSD and a 2 TB HDD. The old iMac had a nearly full 1 TB HDD.
This means when I used Setup Assistant I had to exclude from the list of things to copy, all of my Music and Movies folders as they wouldn't fit on the SSD.
I have now been able to pull the Music/Movies off the old Time Machine backup and put them on the HDD, and all the system/app files are on the SSD. So that's all good up to now.
BUT, all the guides I read about relocating iTunes from one HDD to another start with the library being in
~/Music and doing a 'consolidate'. In my case it isn't (and can't be due to space constraints) in
~/Music to start with. In fact, it's starting in the place I want it to be,
So my question is, how do I tell iTunes the library is now on the HDD, not in the default
If I do the relocate in the iTunes Preferences > Advanced panel to the new location and then consolidate, I'm worried it'll overwrite the music that is already there, with the empty library in
