Spanning from external HD to a new Mac
TuneSpan looks great. Before I purchase from the App Store, I wanted to run something past you please.
I have moved my entire iTunes library to an external HD and have purchased a new Mac. The new Mac does not have enough space on it for the entire library, so TuneSpan appears to be the ideal solution as I would like to be able to have some albums on my Mac locally, but also have the option to connect my external HD for the rest of my content.
My question is whether I can open iTunes on the Mac and point it to the library on the external HD, and then span a few albums across to my Mac. I'd then like to be able to open iTunes on my Mac, without having the external HD connected, and play the albums that are stored locally, whilst still being able to browse my library (albeit without the ability to play tracks that are stored on the external HD).
Is it possible to span this way around? I'm worried that if the files have to exist on the Mac first, and then get spanned to the external HD, that I won't have enough space on my Mac for the library before it gets spanned.
Hope that makes sense!
