Hello, so I keep my music library seperate from my itunes folder, is there a way to get iTunes to automatically recognise when files are added to my music folder? Currently i have to do it manually and click (File>Add Folder to Library)

 

I'd like to keep my files/folders where they are ideally.

Hi Star :)

Apparently there's a way to do so using one of iTunes specific folder, like described in this support article from Apple here:

Let me know if it works for you.

Yeah so... it works fine, but not the way how i'd like it to do it. i'll just leave it the way it is and add tracks manually.  Thanks though

Sorry Star, I know that Apple software have very specific ways to works and it's always hard to find a work around with them. So if what I suggested is the official procedure, then I guess there's not much of a work around.
