Oops, should read

I do notice this regarding the sizes of my old Vbox XP's iTunes were I
purchased apps using iTunes (so the binaries are downloaded by iTunes)
and the space used by apps on my iPad in comparison with my new Vbox
Win7's iTunes, were I tried to backup the binaries, let alone how quick
purchase information is synced.

Still broken English, but perhaps less confusing.
