I have recently purchased an external HDD and i want to move, not just copy, as much stuff to it as possible, to reduce system startup time. How can i, in a convenient way move videos, pictures and music to the external without having to reimport all my 9GB of music into iTunes. (not to mention some videos, bringing the count up to around 12GB). The same goes for Windows Media Player (for media sharing with my xbox). I also want the "my pictures" folder to lead to a folder on the external.

Note: The inbuilt software provided some features like syncing, but not sufficiently.
