    Well, I have 15 GB of space free of my 120 GB macbook drive (32 of it goes to windows). I am a photographer so I am constantly eating disk space. Do you think that I should just keep my photography on seperate drives (2 gbs of space), or stash my enormus 30 GB Itunes library on 2 different drives, and delete the one I have off my computer??? Would I be risking too much?????

    What do you mean by store your iTunes library on two different disks? As far as *I* know, the iTunes library has to be in a single place, unless you're planning to Raid 0 the disks, which is dangerous for your data.

    Better solution: Put Windows on an external drive.

    Yes, yes, but I am a newbie, so how exactly would you do that (my windows is on a seperate partition)

    Well, if you're using Boot Camp, I don't know if it's possible.

    However if you use one of the various virtualization products available instead, such as Parallels or VMware Fusion, you can put the windows disk image anywhere you'd like, just by dragging it from somewhere to somewhere else in the Mac OS Finder.

    Yeah, but I already tried that with parallels. I run vista, and It runs painfully slow. But, I will find a way to try to do it with boot camp!

    Newbies for ever.

    May I congratulate you on spelling iTunes wrong and none of the anal macers picking you up on it. I too spelled iTunes like you - Itunes and I got a whole heap of grief for it. Again many congratulations!!!!
