I am able to index the "Music/iTunes/iTunes Music" folder (where some of my music is), but I get the above message when I try to index at just one level up, at "Music/iTunes" (where all the playlists are). Very frustrating, since this is on a local computer and not on an external drive.
Most frustratingly, the bulk of my music is on the external drive. When I try to index that, it also kicks back the same error message.
Here's how my system is set up:
- Mac OSX 10.11.6
- iTunes on Mac's Local Drive (some of my music, about 200 files, is in the same folder as iTunes)
- most of the rest of my music (~27,000 audio files) is on an external hard drive, but some is organized in iTunes playlists (which I presume are on the local drive folder /Music/iTunes/)?)
Remedies I have tried:
- re-named computer to shorter name (to match Netbios) and restarted
- rebooted router
- tried indexing individual album/artist folders on the external drive - this worked, but I shouldn't have to do each one at a time, right?
I would like to index my iTunes playlists and the external drive files.
Any help would be appreciated!
