    Total count is 729GB but that includes, everything in iTunes, Games, Apps, Music, Video, Movies, TV SHows, etc etc.

    How does everyone manage this, because right now I have everything on one external hard drive, but it is getting hard to manage.

    I just ordered a MBA 13" with the 256GB but I think I am only going to transfer stuff I watch listen to and use each day.

    I seem to spend hours fighting this thing each week, and just when I thought I was organized I find something else.

    How is everyone managing theirs?

    To be honest I had the same issue,

    So I deleted everything i never use then store things I use a lot on my mbp no more than 50gb as i don't see the need for any more on something portable.

    The rest on a USB external drive, time capsule, and a nas drive thats plugged into my time capsule.

    Then i just point itunes in the direction of my files so soon as i am home all my music and files appear again

    MediaMonkey apparently works well with larger libraries, so you maybe want to give that a go.
