    Hey guys I'm running out of space on my Local disk C and I would like to change the directory to another drive which has more capacity. But the problem is I cant find that option in iTunes. It only lets me change the default folder for iTunes Music but not the Apps which is my big concern. Any idea guys ?

    Delete your apps, music, and anything in your library, but DON'T move them to the trash. Then move the whole iTunes file in the music folder to the new hard drive and re add them all. Hope that helps.

    Right click on My Documents in the start bar and click Properties and change the target folder location
    But make sure that you put iTunes folder to the default and it will just change to the External drive.

    Don't do what he said unless you want to lose all your applications -_-

    Move it where you want it, create an alias, then drop the alias into the iTunes folder and it will point it to the new location.

    Why would he lose all of his applications? I have done that many times and haven't lost anything.

    He wasn't paying attention but that is a stupid way to do it anyway but exactly what we would expect.
