Problems consolidating itunes library


Make sure you have a [backup of your i Tunes library](https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201625) before proceeding.- **Option 2: Copy your i Tunes Library to the same location as your files** - In your Music folder, find the folder called i Tunes. Once Roon is watching a folder that contains both your music files and your i Tunes XML, force a rescan: _Note that if you copy your i Tunes library this way, subsequent changes made to your playlists in i Tunes will not sync automatically to Roon, **unless** you point i Tunes at the new location by following [these instructions](https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201596)._ - **Option 3: Consolidate Your i Tunes Library** -- if the above doesn't work, or if the music in your i Tunes library is spread across multiple folders, you will want to consolidate your library to a single folder.This way you can start with your i Tunes library, and then either use both apps side-by-side, or just move forward with Roon.

i Tunes XML's frequently contain references to files that have been deleted or moved, sometimes by the thousands--producing bad or confusing experiences in Roon.

- Make sure you consolidate to the folder you want Roon to watch (meaning on your NAS or USB drive) - Make sure you have a backup of your media, as i Tunes will move your files around - To consolidate your i Tunes Library, follow Apple's documentation [here](https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201625) If your i Tunes XML is updating properly and Roon is watching a folder that contains **both* your XML and your media, you should be all set.
