    OK, i found where its stored - user>name>library>itunes (thought id seen it at some point)

    So this folder is taking up 670mb on my HD. No big deal i suppose... just wondering whether i can delete then without messing up itunes & iphones etc...

    I'm on Ubuntu right now, but I'll take a look in my windrive...

    This may take a few minutes :eek:

    Nevermind, you found it. Just out of curiosity, Windows or Mac?

    Don't delete it till you've updated your phone ;)

    ive updated the iphone.

    Just thinking i should leave them there - i doubt deleting them will do anything as it just seems to be a place to download them, but keep them incase i need to restore.

    i suppose i can delete v1.1.4 ? and just keep v2.2 & v2.2.1.

    If anyone wants to know, the location for Windows users is /Users/Name/AppData/Roaming/Apple Computer/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates

    You mean:
    C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes for XP users right? I'm guessing the other path is for Vista users. :)

    It maybe Vista, or it maybe because I viewed it through Ubuntu and just copied it from the properties :D
