Location of music files after import from Music folder

Post by bmckenney » Thu Jan 28, 2010 8:50 pm

I know the Play library file is located in the library subfolder. After I do an import of all the Music from what is basically the Itunes Music folder structure, does Play replicate the music files on the local disk somewhere, or does it just use pointers to the files that I imported?

The reason I ask is I want to move music files off the local disk to external disk for itunes and for Play. And I hope that I'm not doubling the storage size requirements.

Play does not copy the files, the database points to the imported files in their original location.
