    Can someone please help me make sense out of the clutter that has become of my iTunes Music Folder?

    Please see the screenshot below. I am quite certain that there is abunch of archival /legacy files within this folder, as well as a bunch of stuff that doesn't really need to be in this folder any longer, and I would like to know what is what so that I can begin cleaning things up a bit.

    Also when I make backups of my iTunes Library (minus the audio/video files) which files are the ones that need to be backed up?


    and the expanded view:


    ...any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Contents of my iTunes folder. The com.apple.iTunes.plist files look like something you would normally find in ~/Library/Preferences.
