    I have spent a lot of time with my music (adding artwork and lyrics) to iTunes, and if my Windows XP crashed, then I would lose all of this.
    Can anyone tell me which folders to archive to a flashdrive, and their location. Much appreciated.
    Thanks in advance

    Or better yet, go to your Music directory in your PC. Copy the WHOLE iTunes folder. If your computer crashes, just paste that folder back into Music and iTunes will be exactly how you left it.
