    In my ~/Music folder resides two huge folders for iTunes. I'm sure this came about when I reinstalled Snow Leopard some time ago, I didn't realize the transfer didn't happen correctly at the time.

    One is called iTunes (296 gigs, last opened on Aug 31 and modified today) which seems to be my current folder used by iTunes 10.

    The other is called iTunes Media (252 gigs, last opened July 30 and last modified on the same date). I'm noticing in here however, files (such as Voice Memos) that are NOT in the first folder I mentioned above.

    I've probably tons of duplicates here, but what is not a duplicate I'd like to send into the correct place - and then kill the huge unneeded folder!

    How can I verify where iTunes looks for all of it's data? Music, videos, books, etc. Any suggestions as to how I could merge these?

    thanks for any tips

    I was actually wondering the same thing.... i keep my itunes folder in an external drive and i just reinstalled leopard as well... when i was restoring my itunes software i noticed that there were those new folders...

    i tried figuring out by downloading some free videos, podcasts, songs from itunes and seeing where they downloaded to... it looks like everything goes to that media folder now... i didnt really have the time to check and i was going to go back to it... so please if anyone has any info it would really help us out. thankssss
