You know theres a setting in iTunes to point the library location elsewhere right? or you could move your Music folder to your external drive and symlink it

You can also specify the location of your photos folder in the Photos app Settings dialog.

Simple fix my friend. Go into settings and then library and make sure to uncheck an option that says to copy music to the itunes folder. I believe it is under Advanced in iTunes preferences, it has been a while since I have had to configure it. This way you can have all of your music on another driver or network location without it taking up space on your main drive!
