Once you choose -not- to delete, you can't go back?

    I can't seem to find an option in itunes preferences so that when I delete a song from the itunes library to also psysically delete it from the hard drive.

    I did select no the first time around.

    You would have to find that song from your Music folder and either add it again to the Library or just trash it.

    You can use this method to move your iTunes music library to a new location, delete the old library folder (including songs you've deleted from the library but not moved to trash), then - if you want to - move the library back to it's original location... tedious, but a nice way to clean up a bit every now and then if you have a much larger iTunes Music folder than the contents of your iTunes library would indicate... ;)

    i thought command + Delete would give you the option to move the original to the trash
