Thanks, Hagen and Rhett. <br>Here is what I did (with a little help from John:)<br>I rebooted in the external drive and went to prefs in iTunes. There are choices right there in prefs to "share" and......Viola, there it was! Now, all I have to do once a week or so is to boot on the external drive and it will update itself.<br><br>Why am I so concerned? About four or five months ago, I heard a strange "beep beep" sound from my hard disk on startup. I posted my curiosity and everybody said I was about to lose it. <br>I had an external drive and made a full backup. Then a few days ago the impossible happened.....the external drive went "beep beep" and died. My backup needed a backup!<br>Now, with my new external in place, I will call Apple and ask about the intermittent problem and ask them if I should wait for the hard disk to die forever or will they replace it now. <br>Either way, whet I intend to do is add another hard disk to the new one in the Quicksilver so I will have two internals and one external,......One for a backup and one as a backup to the backup! <br><br>
