I want to have 2 users be able to use the same itunes library and be able to sync an ipod which ever user is logged in. I tried making both the My Music folders point to the same folder, but that didn't work. One itunes would not store its library info in that folder. I was wondering if I could create a junction directory so that I can have both My Music folders redirect to a common library folder. I've only read about directory junctions , I havn't tried them.
Yes you can, just make sure both users have adequate permissions to access the folder. You can use the command line tool
Alternatively, have iTunes use the "Public Music" folders instead, since all users already have access to these folders.
In Windows 7, this is C:\Users\Public\Public Music
I forget what it is in Vista, but it's probably similar. And in XP it's probably under C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Shared Documents or something similar.
