    I have two locations for the Apple Loops folder:

    /Library/Audio/Apple Loops/Apple/Apple Loops for GarageBand

    /Library/Application Support/GarageBand/Apple Loops/Apple Loops for GarageBand

    The contents are largely identical although the one from the Application Support path has 92 less items than the one from the Audio path. Why the two duplicate folders? Is this from when I transferred files from my old system? Can I trash one? Which one?

    one should be in the hard drive directory, and one should be in your user directory. I believe the one in the user directory is for loops you created, and the other is for GB pre-set loops.

    my opinion is that you'd be better off leaving them alone, though if you're set on it, don't ditch the folders...maybe pick one folder and ditch the contents (after making a copy of those contents first) and then run GB and see what happens. If it works the same as always, then I guess there'd be no problem
