Currently Being ModeratedOct 29, 2007 11:42 AM (in response to ATH)One possible method you could use is this one:
First, download the script "Not In Any Playlist To Playlist":
Install and run this script (could take a while).
All tracks which were not in any playlist, now will be present in the new one.
I recommend to browse through the tracks to see if it contains songs you still want to keep.
Simply select those and press the Delete key (the entry in the playlist will be deleted, but not the actual file).
Next, select all (remaining) tracks in the new playlist (Command-A).
To delete all selected tracks, press the Option-key and then the Delete key.
You will be asked if you want to put all those tracks in the Trash.
Emptying the Trash is the last step to regain HD space.
Other methods which could be used are sorting on times played in the Library and then deleting the ones you never played or only played once, whatever you prefer.
Hope this helps,

That will show all songs which are not part of any playlist, other than this one.HP Pavilion, Windows XP Pro, 60GB Video, 6GB Mini
