My iTunes library is a graveyard. It's a place for my media to slip away and die in silence.

Sure, there are some well-worn albums in my iTunes collection, but there's also an increasing portion of dusty, old podcasts, audiobooks, TV shows, and random music that I honestly don't remember how (or why) I acquired.

To break free from all the crud in my iTunes collection while leaving the good stuff intact I could methodically comb through the collection and delete the duds. But frankly, I'd rather chew a mouthful of tacks.

Wouldn't it be great if iTunes automatically recommended content to delete? Well, it can, and it takes just a few minutes to set up.

To see how it's done, check out my How To video and step-by-step gallery. It will lighten your iTunes library and free up some precious hard-drive space.
