While my iTunes library works, I have a lot of dead files and a messed up iTunes Music directory.
Right now I have a hierarchy that looks something like this
|-&I | `-&I's Music | |-This Day Aria.mp3 | `-Until the Sun.mp3 |-Archie | `-Archie's Music | |-Heart Attach.mp3 | |-Kingdom.mp3 | `-Roll The Dice.mp3 `-iTunes Music |-&I | `-&I's Music | |-This Day Aria.mp3 | `-Until the Sun.mp3 `-Archie `-Archie's Music |-5upernova.mp3 |-Heart Attack.mp3 |-Kingdom.mp3 |-Leto.mp3 `-Roll the Dice.mp3
As shown above, many tracks are present in both iTunes Music/ and out, but not all. Only one is linked into the iTunes Library. Usually the one that's linked is the one outside iTunes Music/, but sometimes it's the other way around. Also not all tracks are duplicated.
I want to consolidate all the duplicated tracks into one, without unlinking tracks from iTunes, and flattening out the iTunes Music/ directory.
Anyone know how to do this.
The library is completely backed up. I also have an iPod that I can put the library on. If possible, it'd be great to pull the library off the iPod, which I'm sure is properly structured.
