    I have been trying to clean up my computer a bit so I cleared about about 18gbs from iTunes, straight out of iTunes. It asked if I wanted to delete the music I said "yes", it then asked if I wanted to delete from my computer and I said "yes" as well. In my iTunes it shows I have 72 gbs of music where my iTunes folder shows 90 gbs. And the music I deleted is not in the folder, so I feel as it did it's job?

    Wow, videos....Totally forgot those are in the iTunes folder as well. I am a moron. That's all it took, thanks for the help. And I really don't have that much music, I am a huge Dave Matthews Band fan and have A LOT of live albums so I believe have of my library belongs to them...

    maybe you deleted some music but didnt send to trash, so songs not in iTunes could still be in the folder.

    If your in a mac just ensure you have emptied the trash to ensure it's not counted

    I hate to say it, but that isn't a lot.


    Also OP, do you have any podcasts, ringtones etc. Those will take up space also.
