    iTunes slow to move files to trash - Leaopard
    Since upgrading to Leopard I have noticed that Deleting files from my itunes library is EXTREMELY slow. Much much slower than in Tiger.

    For example to delete just one album - mp3 - about 90megs its taking well over a minute simply to remove from library and move the files to trash.

    I'm on a 1.9 G5, 2.5gig Ram, library is on an external drive. Leopard 10.5.2, Itunes 7.2 (with latest updates)

    Obviously this isn't something I do regularly but its slow enough to suggest there is a problem and certainly didn't happen on Tiger.

    Anyone else noticed this behaviour?

    I think I know what's causing this.

    The slowness seems to occur when I delete files from within a playlist (to do this you hold down the Option Key and press delete - this deletes the files too, not just the playlist entries)

    If I delete it from the Library it seems to be much faster.
