    So i got my 128GB Air the other day (love it by the way)

    Got my 17GB Music folder from my external harddrive so i could move it to my Itunes Library in order to sync my Iphone

    Now when i was checking 'About this Mac' in the storage section it is telling me i am storing 34GB of Audio

    Anyone have any advice on where this other 17GB of music came from because i have checked and i defo didnt move my Music folder over twice

    Thanks in advance Nick

    Have you copied the music folder over to the MBA and then imported the music into iTunes, while iTunes has the following preference (iTunes > Preferences > Advanced) checked/selected?

    Delete the music folder you copied to the MBA on the MBA or delete the iTunes library. Now you have duplicates.
    Or you delete the music in the iTunes folder and deselect that checkbox and import the music again and use the folder you have copied to the MBA to store your music.

    It is all up to you.
