Hello I have over 41.6 GBs of extra files of all my music on in my Itunes. Is their a way to delete all of them but keep the original file? All my music is on an external Hard drive. So when I find some of the files and delete them they stay on the external hard drive. So is their a easy way were Itunes takes them off of the external hard drive?
QUOTE Thanks

If you're sending unwanted music from either internal or external hard drive to the Recycle Bin (Win) [Trash in MacOS], then you need to empty the bin before quitting iTunes or ejecting the external drive. Emptying the bin will delete the trashed music file - from either drive.

If you wish to keep the original music file, then make sure you don't send it to Rcycle; or you should store the original on a separate drive, or on a write-protected dvd.

Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.

I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
