    Hi, I'm running windows 7 on my pc and my itunes folder is almost 3 times the size of my actual library. The itunes folder itself is about 30gb while the size displayed in my itunes is 9.45gb. Is there a reason for this, or a way to reduce the size on my disk?

    Would copying all the files from my itunes window to a flash drive, and then deleting everything from itunes work? Thanks!

    What view are you using in iTunes? That can be deceptive. To get an accurate size, make sure that you're in list view. For example, under TV Shows, if I'm in the Shows view, it gives me one size and time listing for my collection, switch it to list view, and I get a completely different (and more accurate) size and time listing for all my TV Shows.

    Just something to check before you start deleting stuff.
