I have two Mac machines both running Music.app and I'd love to share Music Library.musiclibrary between the machines.


However, after copying the .musiclibrary from one machine to the other, the playlists I created are not synced over.

Also, after I export the library from menu: File > Library > Export Library, the actual library.xml is a small XML that stores no metadata about actual songs or playlists.


I expect that the .musiclibrary would work the same way as .photolibrary, i.e., a portable self-contained personal collection containing all the metadata including playlists.


How should I reliably backup and restore .musiclibrary between machines just as I do with .photolibrary?
