Hi all,


Got my new MacBook Air yesterday and transferred my music from an external hard drive to my desktop in a folder, in total around 21GB.


I then loaded all the music onto my iTunes and all was fine.


However upon checking my memory (About this Mac - More Info - Storage), it said that 40GB in total was music.


How has this somehow doubled in the process?


Best Regards,



MacBook Air, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)
