    Hi All,

    I've been using the forum for awhile not just not really an active poster. So recently i decided to reformat my laptop and reinstall everything from scratch. While transferring my music i kind of noticed a discrepancy that my entire iTunes music folder says its 11.3 Gigs while iTunes itself reports 6.32 Gigs. Thats almost 2x the size.

    I've accounted for:
    Music: 6.32 GB
    Movies: 642.2 MB
    TV Shows: 0
    Podcasts: 1.3 GB

    And its still a pretty large difference... I tried the search feature and turned out 0 results so i'm sorry if there was a thread on this that i wasn't able to find. I would like some help if anyone has an idea on how to reclaim my hard drive space. I'm sure my mac would have the problem as it is using the same library.

    Currently running Windows XP SP 2 and iTunes
    Thanks for any help.

    BTW, I haven't deleted that much music from my library without sending it to the trash that would result in a 2-3 Gig discrepancy : /
