Dear 100 Hour Board,
How can I consolidate my music? On my computer, I've ended up with three copies in three different folders of some songs, through transferring between computers and downloading from Google Play backup.
I'm currently using iTunes on my computer, and that got rid of duplicates on the playlist, but now I have folders with no music and music from the same CD in three different folders.
Is there any way that I can have something search all of the files in my music folder, and put them into new folders based on one criteria?
iTunes actually has a feature to do this. First, under Preferences, go to Advanced and make sure your iTunes media folder is where you want it. On that tab, you can press "Keep iTunes Media folder organized." It should then put everything into proper folders by artist and album.
If you have files outside of you iTunes media folder, iTunes can automatically move them to your media folder. The options to do that are under File > Library > Organize Library.
