Stop using TuneSpan without "restoring"?

Derek Van Ittersum shared this question 8 years ago

I have been using your application for years and have enjoyed it. I kept all my music on an external drive and other iTunes files on my mac and was happy with this arrangement.

However, now I have a NAS. I spanned my media there, but then thought I would like to move my whole iTunes library there.

My question is: do I need to span my media back to my Mac or can I do some other procedure to move my entire iTunes library to the NAS (where the media already is)? I am concerned that my media will not actually fit on my Mac now, so I don't know how to stop using TuneSpan to manage my media now ...

Thanks for getting in touch.

After using TuneSpan, iTunes KNOWS where the files are. iTunes is not dependent on TuneSpan in that way.

So, if you follow normal instructions to move your consolidate your library and move the library files, having some stuff spanned with TuneSpan should not be an issue.

You should be able to find some good instructions on Google.

Please let me know if you have anymore questions or have any confusion regarding the instructions to intend to use.
