Windows 7: Moving iTunes after a Clean Install of Windows 7

Moving iTunes after a Clean Install of Windows 7

Hey all.

Not sure if this is the right forum, or even the right sub section but hoping someone can help me.

The situation is I recently got my first SSD drive and am going to do a clean install of Windows 7 x64 as well as my other programs. When I do this, I will simply remove my current Windows drive that has my OS and operating system, install my SSD and install windows, etc, then plug my old HDD back in via an extra SATA or maybe just put it in one of my external drive bays I have. Then I will just pull off whatever files I need.

This old HDD of course will be the one that contains my iTunes install. More than that, I have a second larger drive in my computer that I wont be messing with that contains all my media, including my actual iTunes music and other files.

Basically I will need to install iTunes fresh on my SSD, but then how to I tell it where all my files are, and more importantly, my settings? (Podcast subscriptions are particularly important to me.)
