Warnings if you copy all songs at once may cause the problems would be if multiple songs in different \ \ ‘ F # # \ \ ‘ folders have the same name. For example, that there are several songs with the name \ 01Track01 \ \ ‘ \ ‘ .m4a. If you now try to copy all songs to the same folder on your computer you probably need to manually transfer all songs with the same name. This takes a lot of time, so then the first method above works better (each F # #-copy directory separate to your computer).
