    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?

    ...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.
