How come iTunes makes copies of my songs when I play them?

by on December 16, 2012

Q: After installing itunes on my laptop, things have gotten weird. Every time I upload a song or picture, the computer randomly makes copy files for some of the media files all on its own with random names. It’s been taking up a lot of space on my laptop. How do I stop it? Should I uninstall itunes?

    The settings for iTunes might be setup weird for you.
