Introduction

CasaTunes QuickSync will discover, index, and if configured, copy all your music files located on one or more of your PCs, Macs and/or networked storage devices, to your CasaTunes music server. Once the music files have been discovered and indexed, CasaTunes can play your music either from their original networked location, or from a local copy stored on the music server.

Before CasaTunes QuickSync can discover and index your music, you must share, that is allow CasaTunes to access, the music on your PC, Mac or networked storage device. The instructions to share access to your music varies depending on whether your music is on a PC or Mac.  To share access to a folder on your networked storage device follow the instructions for the networked storage device.
