    If you're not very very careful, everything gets put on multiple times!

    The way it works is, you copy a music file onto your machine and tell itunes to find it but then it tends to copy it into its own folder itunes music which it keeps organised. All of a sudden you now have two copies! Add to that duplicates and all the rest and suddenly loads of space gone

    So far I've freed up 15 GB just by getting Poppy to clear out stuff she doesn't need anymore.

    It seems I've got masses of images that have multiplied! I'm wondering if every time I connect my camera to the laptop it dumps every photo into images again as I don't delete them from my camera.

    Do you not use Iphoto? It makes it so easy- connect your cam, it pops up, you select and click import and then it will tell you if you are importing the same pics again- its probably my fave app!

    For some reason Josh it imports them into Pictures. Can I change a setting to make sure they go into iPhoto?
