Question: How Do I Transfer a Backed Up iTunes Library Using SyncToy?
Hi, hope someone can help. I've seen several posts from TuringTest2 on this issue, but I can't seem to achieve the desired objective.
I have used SyncToy several times previously to back up my iTunes library from my Desktop PC [Windows Vista] to an external hard drive. I think this has worked OK, however I have never tried restoring the backed up library.
What I want to do now is transfer this library to a new laptop [Windows 10]. The laptop already has the latest iTunes and a library [that I want to replace]
I set up SyncToy on the laptop with the external drive library folder as the left folder. The right folder I entered C:\Users\geof.ashton\music\iTunes. I then set SyncToy to run "echo."
This seemed to complete OK but, when I turned on iTunes on the laptop, nothing had changed - It was still showing the old/existing library.
Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
