I have a MacBookAir that I would like to remove iTunes music files, but do not want to harm things.  I use my MacBookPro to load my iPhone5 and never use the MBA.  All MBP files are the only ones used and they are backed up to an external HD.


Can I removed these files from the MBA without damaging future use?


- iTunes Media

- iTunes Library.itl

- iTunes Library Extras.itdb

- iTunes Music Library.xml

- iTunes Library Genius.itdb

- Previous iTunes Libraries


My music on the MBA is now up to 75% of the SSD and I need to clear space.  Since I use the MPB and iPhone5 to listen to music I want to try and clear out some of the SSD on the MBA.  However, I do not want to remove things that operate iTunes.


Thanks for any help.

MacBook Air, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3), 256GB | 4GB RAM | late 2010
