iTunes Music folder
When you add songs(mp3s) to your itunes library it then puts those songs (mp3s) in the itunes music folder. Now are those songs copied to the itunes music folder or are they just links to the original files? Once I add mp3s to my itunes library, can I delete the original file and the mp3 will still be in the itunes music folder or will both files be erased? I just want to make sure I dont have 2 copies of each one of my mp3s on my computer, because I have about 18 gigs of music, and I just wanna make sure I'm not taking up 36 gigs, because I have all my original mp3s in one place on my computer and also have them all in my itunes music folder. My problem is most music players just play (load) the song from the orignal directory where the song file resides on my computer, but itunes seems to copy every song you add into the itunes music folder and I just want to make sure the files are connected/linked or whatever. Thanks for any help.
