Is there anyway to delete music files

Hey, I got 60.3GBs in just music mp3s. But over time I got new music and had to convert some to mp3s using iTunes. So I have 2 versions of files. Since I have them where iTunes gets them of a different drive you can just remove them from the library. So is their a easy way to remove the different versions of files with out going one by one deleting them.

You state that you had to convert some of the files to MP3.
If the other files are wave files you want to delete, you can have windows to sort the files by type.
You can then select from the wave files you want to delete by placing a check by them.
Go to Organize, Folder and search options, View, Use check boxes to select items.

Thank You, very much. I'll try both suggestions. I forgot all about the check boxes in Windows 7.
