"Whew! I needed this!"

October 10, 2008  |  By underthumb

 |  Version: iTunes Folder Watch 2.0.1

Pros

I ended up with thousands of duplications of tracks on a NAS. I have had to delete and re-build my iTunes library several times because of the way iTunes behaves when you import music from a folder. This should solve my problems.

Cons

It is a bit buggy, but I'm running it in Vista (in administrator mode as suggested) but nothing serious. Shame it does not spot WMA files. At least all my newly ripped CDs will be imported automatically (I now rip only in MP3).

Summary

If like me you are going mad trying to use iTunes in conjunction with a shared music folder that also serves other people in your home, Media Centre etc. This could be your answer.

"Pretty useful, but painful to use"

September 29, 2008  |  By rgmarkey

 |  Version: iTunes Folder Watch 2.0.1

Pros

Great to be able to sync up iTunes across libraries on a single machine. Interface is uncomplicated and straightforward. Intuitive.

Cons

Several glitches, including an inexplicable and unpredictable tendency to forget which folders you set up to watch, an inability to delete all the broken links at once, and frequent and annoying (minor) error messages.

Summary

While the basic idea is great, and the user interface is thankfully simple and straightforward, I find the bugs and oddities of using this painful. I would feel much more enthusiastic about Folder Watch if it more reliably remembered which folders I set up to watch, deleted all broken links in a single interaction, and didn't create so many odd and undecipherable error messages. It works, but without giving me confidence that it's all going well.

"AWESOME!!! Should come with iTunes"

October 11, 2007  |  By t2technology

 |  Version: iTunes Folder Watch 2.0.1

Pros

Installed on a Win XP and a Vista machine. Worked perfectly on both. Unbelievable. Apple wants to tie you down to the iTunes music store and this little program sets you free. Install it and never think twice about reloading iTunes databases and duplicate imports.

Cons

Doesn't automatically import WMA files.
