itunes backup before formatting

I would like to make a backup of my iTunes before a format (parameters, benefits, bags cover flow ... I do not mp3) but I do not know what file (s) back up. If someone has an idea ...

Thanks for your help...

Re: itunes backup before formatting

you have to backup the "iTunes" in the My Music folder of your Windows account:
The files "iTunes Library.itl" and "iTunes Library.xml" correspond to your music library.
Be sure to keep the same folder structure when you go calling your MP3.
The "iTunes Music" contains your music (unless Do you changed the location of the iTunes Music folder), so not to save.
The "Album Artwork" certainly contains the kits.

It may be wise to convert benchmarks ID3 (right click on the song selection or> "Convert ID3 benchmarks ...") to make all tags of your music visible from the outside. I may be wrong but it took me whenever make this to see the tags visible from another soft.

Re: itunes backup before formatting

ID3 is a very popular audio file data tagging format in active use by software and hardware developers around the world. ID3 tags are supported in software such as iTunes, Windows Media Player, Winamp, YME, MusicMatch and hardware players like the iPod, Creative Zen, Toshiba Gigabeat and Sony Walkman.

An ID3 tag is a data container within an MP3 audio file stored in a prescribed format. This data commonly contains the Artist name, Song title, Year and Genre of the current audio file. This website contains the format standards information for the ID3 tagging data container. If you've read this far and are confused, check the ID3v2Easy page for a short, low-tech introduction.
