Question: NOT redownload all Music
I have a new iMac - and have now all my Music in an external drive (before I had it in Macintosh HD2 in the "old" Mac" --- the new iMac has an internal SSD but I don't want to use it for the "bulk" data)
I copied the iTunes folder where the Libray (.itl) is etc to the new iMac Music Folder i.e. Lib is in SSD
I copied the Music Files (iTunes Media) to an external drive
I updated the preferences.
So all is ok, I see the Music, I see the Play lists etc... BUT the Music shows up as NOT downloaded...
When I click on the "cloud icon" it downloads it, but then it will be duplicated in the disk...
How do I tell iTunes I have a version already and do not want to download it again? I do not want to redownload GBs andGBs of music
(yes I have done File->Library->Update Music Cloud)
