comment Deleting the original files iTunes
What kind of help are you looking for here? "How to find audio files in Finder", "Checking for duplicates between audio files in Finder and iTunes" or something else? In the first case, are the audio files stored in a few specific folders or ("randomly") all over the place?

Can you open Terminal, enter cd ~/Library; du -sm * | sort -rn | head -16 and add the result to your answer (by editing it)? This will give us an idea about which part of your Library folder eats the most space.

Why do you think this one is the best? Even if you just want to push a/your crowd sourcing campaign, describing the features in more detail will improve the value of the answer.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is NOT about anything related to Apple products or their use.
