    That is the iPod database and associated operating system files - notes - contacts, game data...

    How much space are we talking about?

    I see your concern on a 8GB device.

    Best I can recommend is to do a restore. That seems to be the most common fix for it.

    Your iPod. That's about the only fix I found in my searching.
