    Just installed an SSD and now running El Capitan from that with all old data imported using Migration Assistant. I've left a large Itunes folder on the older SATA drive but in order to now clean up is it just a case of deleting the Applications, Library and system folders from it ?

    Anything else I should be aware of ?

    If you "migrated over" everything else EXCEPT FOR the iTunes folder, and it's the ONLY thing you really need to keep, I would do this:

    1. Move the iTunes folder to the "top level" of files on the drive (i.e., not nested in any other folder).
    2. Delete everything else on the drive.
    3. You will need to "re-orientate" iTunes (on the SSD) to use the "external" iTunes folder. I believe you can do this by holding down the option key as you launch the iTunes app -- it will ask you to designate the iTunes music folder.
