    I am now struggling for space on my computer and had a took at what I could remove. In my iTunes library I noticed that there were multiple files for the same games, eg. 1112, 1112 (01), 1112 (02)
    I think these are from updates and just create new files of the same game, not update the files. Will I receive no problems if I just delete the oldest files for each game to give me more disk space?

    The updates are in your recycle bin, you can delete those are older versions. Go ahead and delete those. Should free up space.

    Thanks yourofl

    I went through and it was mostly really old updates that hadn't been moved to the recycle bin. I also found Myst had been put in separate folder for some reason and 1gb of Crazy Hotdogs compressed folders were there... bit odd but got rid of 2gb of space

    No problem, also if you have any free apps you dont like in your itunes library delete them and go to your bin and empty it also. Feel free to ask me any more questions (I'm a computer guru)
