    be copied from one library to another Track metadata most track metadata can be copied along with the media files The main exception is the Date Added field which iTunes automatically sets to the date and time the track is imported into the library iTunes does not expose a way to change this value after the fact so if you copy tracks to another library the tracks in the destination library will have the date that the copy was performed not the date that the track had in the original library Artwork album artwork can be copied along with your tracks though the details of this can differ depending on whether the artwork was downloaded from the iTunes store You can read more details about how this works in Copying Album Artwork Podcast subscriptions iTunes does not make available the links to podcasts that you re subscribed to in your library so there is no way for PowerTunes to copy those subscriptions across to another library Copying your subscription list manually is not too hard though and that is described in the Copying Podcasts page of this manual iOS apps iTunes does not publish the list of apps you have in your library that can be synced with your iPhone or iPad so PowerTunes is not able to list these or copy them to another library This can also be done manually as described in Managing iPhone Applications iTunes Extras iTunes LPs PDFs and iBooks iTunes does not publish information on these items in your library so there is no way for PowerTunes to list these items or copy them to another library Note that as of OS X 10 9 iBooks are now handled by a separate iBooks app on your Mac instead of via iTunes iCloud tracks If

    POSIX permissions For example if you have a computer set up for your family you can choose to have a library shared that only be accessed from mom and dad s accounts but not the kids Second ACLs provide an inheritance feature that will cause any new files created inside a folder to be assigned the same permissions as the folder itself This is necessary when sharing a media folder since if one user imports new files into iTunes and they are put in the shared media folder those files will automatically be given the necessary permissions for other users to be able to read and write those files without having to reapply permissions for the new files manually If you share a library or media folder with a set of specific users PowerTunes will assign an ACL to each file and folder containing one ACL entry for each user giving that user read and write permission to the file folder When sharing with all users PowerTunes insteads uses an ACL with a single entry giving the everyone group read write access to the file folder These permissions will be applied recursively to the entire media folder for a shared
