iTunes lets you enjoy all your favourite songs in one place, anytime you want. However, the experience can flag pretty quickly when you have to struggle for space to use your iTunes.

iTunes creates lots of useless files or junk files while you are using it. Don’t you know that, not only huge space is occupied, but also iTunes gets lagging? Among the huge iTunes space, there is a “Downloads” folder in iTunes media folder. Take it easy, this post will get you covered.

What Does Downloads on iTunes Do?

Perhaps one of the best experiences of using iTunes is being able to download what you want to keep on your computer. It’s a great way to ensure that your best highlights are not far from your computer.

A lot can happen when you’re trying to download stuff though. Music or album artwork downloads can fail or download multiple times. Logs can be created of these events and they are kept on your computer.

All this data simply sits on your computer for as long as you let it. Depending on how long you leave it, this data can begin to take up a lot of valuable device space. You could be giving up anywhere from a few megabytes to several gigabytes of space.

The frustrating thing about this downloads data is that you often cannot get to it all at once. You can get rid of this data but the problem is how.

How to Clear Downloads from iTunes Manually

It is possible for you to manually delete the iTunes downloads data that is taking up your computer space. Although, in order to do this, you need to know your way around your device and its directories.

  • If you are using a Windows device, you can generally see your downloads in the following location: C:\Users\user\Music\iTunes\iTunes Media\Downloads.
  • If you are using a Mac, you can find downloads at: Go > Home > Music > iTunes > iTunes Media > Downloads.

While you can find your downloads at these locations, the problem is how to go about deleting those files you want gone. If you know your way around your device well, you could manage well. Maybe.

However, the exercise is likely to take a deal of your time. You may also run the danger of deleting files you would rather keep and keeping files you would rather delete.
