iMac 27" 3.06 GHz with 12GB RAM OSX10.8.2 and iTunes 11.01 (12)


I've read many of the threads regarding moving the iTunes library to an external drive. I want to do this as I have only got a 1TB drive in my iMac and therefore want to free-up some space on the internal drive.


I have iTunes Match enabled too which happily works between my other Apple products. So - at the moment, everything's working fine and I'm terrified of breaking anything!:))


Anyway - if someone could please help me with a step-by-step guide to moving my library so that iTunes (the program) would reside on my iMac, but the music/movies/books/apps etc live on the external drive which will then still work with Match, I would be so grateful........


Lastly, would there be any issues with doing this - ie would there be any indexing/searching issues or any other things I should be aware of that would stop me doing this?


I look forward to hearing from anyone who may be able to help.


Thanks and Kind Regards
