    I have about 52 apps on my i-Pod. I DO NOT want them on my computer, but in i-Tunes I can't find an option to do anything about it. The apps take up WAY too much room on my computer, and I don't feel that they are necessary to have on my comp since I only use them on my i-Pod, and if they get deleted from my i-Pod and can just redownload them to my i-Pod from the apps store USING my i-Pod. I only have about 11 gigs (out of 100) left on my computer... Can someone please help me?

    As far as I'm aware, the apps you have installed on your iPod are not installed to your computer. When iTunes syncs them, it just means that it's:
    • Copying the purchases to your Apple account
    • Backing up your iPod
    I don't think the backups take up a substantial amount of hard drive space. You should look instead at what files you have that you don't need (I know I'm really bad about downloading things and not deleting them), and think about investing in a bigger hard drive (or, at least, an external hard drive).
