    I would like to clean-up all apps from my computer, as I really don't have a need for a backup. So I would like to remove all apps by unticking the "sync apps" option in iTunes. But then it claims that all apps will be removed on ipad as well..that I don't want. Anybody any idea how to proceed? Thanks

    Why not just leave them, they won't do any harm on your computer.

    They take up much needed space on my 30Gb SSD :)

    Well that would be a problem!

    Have you considered getting a cheap ext HD and keeping your iTunes libraries on that, you would only need to plug it into your computer when you need to run iTunes. I do this and it works perfectly.

    Cheers for the tip, and I already have an external HD as temp/scratch disk. Might as well use this. I changed the Media folder location in iTunes to external location, works fine.

    But this is only in regards to the Media folder, right? Do you know a way to have the complete iTunes folder (c:\Music\iTunes) moved to external location?

    Edit : nevermind, found out how to point to different library .itl location. Thanks for the help.
