You can copy entire music libraries, along with their respective metadata. Users retain all their artist, album, and genre information, along with all others, when copying files, according to the folks at Candysoft.

What’s more, CopyToy can also handle movies, photos, games, playlists, podcasts, TV Shows, and iTunesU files. This means, for instance, that users won´t need to re-download large iTunesU files.
