Apple Music subscription and NAS?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Are downloaded music files from the Apple Music subscription service stored at the same folder/directory as the items I have bought? Want to send all my music to an external NAS (Synology DS216J).

I should think it's not a problem, but I see Apple Music files as temporary-ish (subscription dependent) and I wouldn't want new music to be stored in a different place than the stuff I bought before. Want to setup a media server on a Mac Mini with 256 SSD and only have the OS installed; have everything else on my 8TB NAS, including Apple Music downloads.

 

Is this as easy as it sounds?

Apple Music downloads are stored in the iTunes Media folder, but the Apple Music cache is not.
