I am trying to consolidate my music and videos on my Laptop. It is in 3 places:

  • C:\Users\RajMore\Music
  • D:\Entertainment\Audio
  • E:\Entertainment\Audio

I want to put all the music in a single location C:\Users\RajMore\Music so that I can carry a single laptop and not have to worry about taking my External HDD or having to remove the D drive to put in my DVD drive.

I have just about 60 GB of music. 10 GB on C, 20 G on D and 30 GB on E. I have 86 GB free on C, so space is not at a premium.

Metadata is the stuff about the music / video that is not stored in the music / video item - it is stored in ITunes. For example: Start of song, end of song, rating (I use this when for good songs to DJ), video start time and end time etc.

How do I do this and not lose metadata regarding the music and videos?
