Storage space is one of the biggest problems for laptop users.
However, it has been my experience, based on a countless number of email queries, that there are many kinds of duplicates.
If you choose to prevent i Tunes from copying files to the i Tunes Media folder when adding items to your library, copying the entire i Tunes folder to an external drive won’t copy the referenced media files that live outside of the i Tunes folder.
That’s where i Tunes’ library consolidation feature comes to the rescue.
Indeed, the perception of what a duplicate is can vary from user to user!
I will try to sort out the different types of duplicates below. • "Music file", "audio file", "sound file", or just plain "file": A music file is a computer file that contains sound data.
