Depending on your version you may find this particular option under the View menu.
To rid your Mac of music, you may want to consider i Tunes Match, which allows you to stream and sync your library through the cloud.
Let's check out this process in Windows, though we'll also mention how to do this on the Mac.
You are also able to create sub-folders and place imported media from Music to Audiobooks into them. Ensure that the metadata is working well for you and has, at the very least, correct info.
Right-click a song, select Get Info and choose the Info tab.
We are frequently asked why i Tunes music hasn’t been backed up.
It is important to understand that i Tunes is a piece of software - it simply reads music files such as MP3’s and AAC’s, these files are not actually in i Tunes, they reside somewhere on your computer.
If you purchase music from i Tunes or rip a CD into your music library, the album shows up in your i Tunes collection.
But if you try to locate it on your computer, sometimes you'll find it hasn't been stored in the appropriate folder, at least not the way you want it set up.
Plus, the album may be organized in i Tunes by the "wrong" artist, by "various artists," or by some other name you'd prefer not to use.
You can correct all this by putting the music in the folder of your choice and changing the album's artist.
You scroll down to the very bottom of your i Tunes library only to find the album listed under compilations and the artist's name listed as "Various Artists." This typically happens if the album contains songs by a variety of different artists or has one main artist who played duets with other artists.
Either way, you'd rather organize the album by its main artist.
You think to yourself: "This is a no-brainer—since I listened to all the albums through i Tunes, I’ll select the ‘i Tunes Media’ folder in My PC Backup (such as C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\i Tunes\i Tunes Media) and that will take ensure these albums are backed up." You’d be wrong in thinking this. This means that you’d only be backing up the albums you had downloaded via i Tunes.
