Plug on the Portable drive and then go to iTunes / Preferences / Advanced and change the Library location back to the External drive.

I would like to have the library on the computer hard drive as it was before I inadvertently created the second library.I mentioned that I had the data on a portable hard drive only for information purposes as the second library seems to have deleted the first.So,my question is how do I restore the first?
Expert:  Mike replied 6 years ago.
What do you mean “only for information purposes“? How did the iTunes library get on the second drive in the first place? If you do as I asked did the library show up correctly?
