    My iTunes is at 45.74GB of music. System Information shows that I have 100.16GB of audio on my computer. Where could I begin to track down the 55GB of audio?

    Edit: Found a "From iPod" Folder in Finder with over 50 hidden folders, deleted it, now it shows the correct amount of music I have.

    In iTunes > Preferences > Advanced:

    Perhaps you somehow copied your library to another location inadvertently? Can you do a search to see if you have any duplicates?

    Do you have Garage Band loops installed ? I'm guessing the rest are in your cache perhaps ? Or temp files.
