We’ve been buying music from the i Tunes Store, importing CDs, acquiring music from other sources, discovering videos and finding that all of this has created an unsightly mess in desperate need of a clean.
If your i Tunes library is taking up too much space, you can move it off of your local drive and onto an external hard drive without breaking your music collection.
You can also transfer your entire i Tunes library from one computer to another if you are migrating to a new Mac.
One great tip is to connect a USB hard drive to your recent Airport Base Station or Time Capsule and use the Airport Disk feature to store the library there, out of sight.i Tunes 11 has some handy key shortcuts for switching library sections.
Use the keys ç 1 through to ç 7 to toggle the view between the different media types.
You could use Tunes Cleaner via the Mac Store for this, but it comes at a cost.
