Quit the Music app and

1. Delete the (unused) ~/Music/Music folder

Love it when I search for a solution to a symptom and everyone else searching for it is dealing with the same problem — and there’s a solution to the problem

I have Apple Music (and therefore iTunes Match). I also have a large number of files I’ve accumulated (ripping CDs, etc.) that are in a backed up at /Volumes/Backup/…/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music/

On the “new” machine, I signed into Apple Music. My library showed up. How can I drag over all those media files and link them to those in the library?
