    My library is on my external HDD. Itunes has always been reading it from there, now I want to install windows 7 and was wondering what do I need to do to make sure itunes picks up the library correctly? do I have to back anything up?

    You will need to point it back to the HDD after you install

    Top left, Click File, Click Add Folder, add your whole External Drive, or whatever floats your boat, and Voila. This is kindergarten stuff.
