    Change I-tunes applications folder to other than c drive,because c drive is your main drive you use it because you format it then you lost your data,better that you do UN-install I-tunes & reinstall in other partition this is better and work properly.

    I'd buy a larger hard drive and migrate your OS and all your files to the larger drive. The tool either comes with the tool to copy all the data from 1 drive to another, or you can download one from one of the major drive manufacturers. No reinstallation needed. It worked great for me.
