    so, i got to thinking today that in order to make a larger partition for windows 7 (as out of a 15 gig partition, i have 200 MB free after doing nothing at all), i wondered if it was possible to store my itunes on an external hard drive as i have half of my 1T HD still empty and ripe for the filling
    i did a look through itunes preferences and found the "change music library directory" option and then google searched and found this

    it seems like there won't be any issues (even though i believe this is for itunes 7)
    i was wondering if anybody else has done this and if so, are there any issues or possibly a lag in loading music?

    thanks guys
    =)
