iTunes Library Manager – 5.4
iTunes is an application that I use a lot. It took me awhile to learn how to use it and I’m not sure if I use all the features to their fullest, but I do have a really well organized library/playlist/etc. All my records have their own cover-art and most of the files have lyrics. It was a long arduous task to build this library, because I did most of the work myself without using third party application to help me find the cover-art and lyrics. Anyways, I keep a back-up safe on an external hard drive and to make sure that everything is protected, I use Time Machine to back up my hard drive only.
*iTunes Library Manager (5.4 – Shareware $10.00) – http://dougscripts.com/itunes/itinfo/ituneslibrarymanager.php / 10.4 / 10.5 PowerPC friendly. Now I found this application that does an iTunes library back up and if you have a large amount of music this is very handy to have on your PowerPC machine because you won’t have to do the work all over again. But you do have to back-up all the time you sync new music into your system, because it does not do it automatically. Anyways, another good feature of iTunes Library Manger is that you can save the same library with a different name, you also can save the newest updated library with a new name and keep the old one “just in case you want to restore the old library”, or you can create a brand new empty library and have a different library for whichever way best fits your organization.
Requires iTunes 7 or better :)
