I am trying to backup my Itunes library but am having no luck writing to DVD's. I thought that maybe an easier option might be to back it up online somewhere. Does anyone know if this is possible? Or do I have to sign up for an annual subscription with something like Carbonite?
I'm not keen to do this, as I only have photos and my music on my laptop that I need to save in case of an emergency. I guess I am looking for a cheaper option.
Many thanks for all your support!
I regularly back up all my "My Documents" folders - including i tunes which is in My Documents/My Music/iTunes to a second drive using either Freefilesynch or Synchtoy, both free. I also have my e Mails in My documents uder Outlook and that gets backed up as well. Asa an extra precaution I also do a clone and an image on yet another drive using Acronis.
I will look at that way to get extra space from Dropbox. I didn't know you could do that. Thank you. I'm not sure about reinstalling itunes though. What if it doesn't work? Will I loose everything?
I will have to look into Freefilesynch and synchtoy too. Thank you for suggesting them. I don't use Outlook anymore as I have gmail now.
It is a good idea using Acronis, I know but I only use my laptop for photos and itunes (besides internet access). I have all my photos sycned and uploaded using Picasa (I think), so I was looking for something similar for Itunes.
As always, I do appreciate all the support you give me on this site!!
Once you have copied your itunes folder to a back up device,whether its to an on-line source or an external hard-drive as long as you then keep the two folders synced then you will not lose anything if you have to reinstall itunes.
I have just reinstalled Windows 7 after an upgrade and after installing itunes I copied across the contents of the itunes folder to the new with nothing lost and ipod working perfectly.
