:!lease limit your posts to addressing my questions in a helpful manner, and save your thoughts about iTunes, Apple, etc. for another thread! Thanks!:!: I've been using iTunes off of an external hard drive because my MacBook's hard drive was getting too crowded. I've since upgraded, though, and I want to migrate back to having all my music on my MacBook. It seems that I have two folders on the external, one that has all the metadata, and a different one that has all the actual music. I decided to start by making an extra backup of both onto a new external hard drive, just in case anything goes wrong. I dragged the folders onto the new hard drive, which is formatted and working fine for other stuff, and it started copying. But the folder with the music files wouldn't copy. It started to, but didn't get past AC/DC when a message popped up saying, Now there's hardly anything on the hard drive, and there certainly isn't another folder with the same name. So I tried going into the folder and selecting all, and dragging that onto a new folder on the new external. But the same message came up. Any suggestions?
