    Over the past years I've deleted a lot of songs in my iTunes library, as you can see the library counts for 11GB right now.
    All the deleting caused that the finder map, where my songs are stored, grew and grew and gres... The map contains 30GB... How can I find the one's that are not connected to my iTunes?
    I thought iTunes automatically deleted the files from Finder but it apparently doesn't...
    Does anyone have a quick method to find these 'ghost' files?

    Are you saying that when you delete a song from the library iTunes doesn't pop up a dialog asking you if you also want to move the file to the trash? It does for me. I let iTunes manage the file locations in the library. Perhaps if you choose not to let it don't iTunes doesn't offer to delete the files because it's not sure if you are using those files in another app.
