Hi everyone. Hope you can help. I did something really stupid. Lets say I have a lot, and I mean a LOT of songs on my pc. Sometimes, there are so many that I have duplicates. So, I asked Itunes to show me the duplicates, which i did. But Itunes will only allow you to delete from the source if the files are located inside the itunes library folder. So I moved all my songs into that folder, and it did the trick, I erased all my duplicates from the source. But then, when I tried to to move all my songs back to the My music folder itunes had created a folder for each file!!! And I have a folder inside a folder inside a folder for each file! Bringing each file out of the folders would take me years! Any way of moving all my files back into just one big folder?

Thanks!

You could use search to look for the file type, include the dot before it (.mp3) click the cross on the left search bar so you get the copy and move options, click edit, select all, copy the selected items

Copy them to a folder you create for them, copy will be safer than move, check the files in the new folder play, then you can do whatever with the other folder

If you do not need the room then you can leave the Russian Doll folders there in case anything happens to the new folder
