Get Organized Consolidate i Tunes Library Community Q&A When you consolidate an i Tunes library, you’re essentially telling a software program to group copies of all music on your computer into one i Tunes music library folder.
If you choose to prevent i Tunes from copying files to the i Tunes Media folder when adding items to your library, copying the entire i Tunes folder to an external drive won’t copy the referenced media files that live outside of the i Tunes folder.
That’s where i Tunes’ library consolidation feature comes to the rescue.
