I've searched this thread, but didn't come up with anything related to this question specifically... My TimeMachine back up drive has filled up (which I knew it would do eventually). I'm curious if I really need to backup my iTunes folder. Since my iPod is essentially a backup of what's on my computer? Should my computer crash, I believe I can restore my iTunes using my iPod (utilizing various available applications that allow you to transfer tunes from the iPod to a computer). Just thought this might be a way to save some space on my TM drive. Thanks for your thoughts.
