Made a mess of a new Mac and Tunespan
Seems I've made a right mess of this. Helping GF with a new Mac. She already has a TS external drive with the necessary iTunes and sub folders.
Copied the old iTunes folder from old Mac to new one. iTunes on new Mac picks up everything fine. Plugged in the TS drive with the new Mac an expected it to just recognise as the spanned media location. Wrong. Faffed about with a few clicks and though I'd got it sorted. Seems not.
I imported a few dozen more movies and TV series and spanned them. All the movies and all the TV series now (appear to be) in the corrrect iTunes folders on the spanned drive. Open TS however and it seems really confused as to what's where! ALL the movies are in the Movies folder on the TS drive yet it tells me that 56 are spanned and 67 have been restored! They haven't been though. They are all in the same Movies folder when I look at the Drive in Finder. Looks like somehow TS thinks that the iTunes Movies folder and the Spanned folder are both on the TS drive.
Same with the TV series. But not worth repeating all again.
I'm tempted to drag the whole lot back to desktop, wipe the external drive, import the movies to iTunes and start again. But surely there's a simpler way to just tell it 'Hey, they're all here and they're all spanned OK'.
