OK, bear with me here. This may be a dumb question with a clear-as-crystal answer that I should know already, but I guess I just want confirmation of what I think is the case.
My music collection is spread throughout several folders on my computer, and I'm famous for ripping dozens of CDs onto my hard drive before moving them to my iTunes library. So after I move the new files from whatever folders they're in over to the folder that I try to keep all my music in eventually, sometimes I'll forget which folders and files I've already added to my iTunes library.
My basic question is: Does checking the "Copy files to iTunes media folder when adding to library" make sure that when I add a folder from within iTunes, it will be copied to the iTunes media folder, and then I can delete the original folder, wherever it might be?
I'm sorry if my question's not clear. I just want to make sure that I can keep my music organized in the simplest way possible, so that I can keep my music collection from being spread all across my hard drive.
I'd really appreciate any clarification. Thanks in advance!
