I read several articles, including this one on MakeUseOf The Easiest Way To Move Your iTunes Library To An External Drive The Easiest Way To Move Your iTunes Library To An External Drive Read More .

What I want to do is not have the library on my Mac in the first place. I want to burn new music directly through iTunes onto the new hard drive. Is it as simple as changing the location when I upload? Will the files that would be in the Library still be held there so it will recognize my music files?
