I moved my entire 60 GB of iTunes folders and subdirectories to a new drive. How do I get the file pointers to work from iTunes?

Preferences/Advanced Change accepts my new location, then does nothing.

The file pointers on the existing files keep the old folder names.

You have to drag the files back into iTunes. – user3463 Sep 27 '12 at 2:23
