I have my iTunes library on my iMac and then copy the Music part of the Library onto my TimeCapsule.
Just set the iTunes media folder to the Time Capsule. -> iTunes for Mac: Moving your iTunes Media folder
No need to copy anything. All media in iTunes will simply be stored and accessed on the Time Capsule.
There's a few reasons that I couldn't do that. Firstly, I want my library in 2 places for safety. Secondly, I'd never trust my main library on a TimeCapsule, they have a crazy failure rate. Lastly, having my main library on a TimeCapsule is WAY too slow for the size of my library. I tried it once on a different NAS and it was just so sluggish.
I'm more interested in some software that would keep my current arrangement in sync.
My itunes library is on the TC directly from itunes. (Backup can be done with external disc inserted in TC) BUT the problem is that everytime i open up my Itunes destinations setting has changed back to "factory setting" and i therefore have to reorganise my music and that takes around 5-10 min. after that it takes Sonos 6 hours to update the library (130 gb) because all info have changed.
I think the best way is to use Chrono Sync then you dont have to remember which songs are new and need to be copied, the sonos updating proces should also be faster.
