Things have gotten a little complicated but I'm sure there is an solution. I have been haphazardly building up the songs in my iTunes. The songs that I have on my iTunes are "drawing from" at least 3 different folders (don't ask how this happened unless you really want to get off on that tangent). Many of these folders that the same exact songs. For example, one song, one might find displayed on my i tunes will be found in 3 different folders, all which are within the folder I set up for itunes to draw from. This, of course, wastes space on my drive. If I haphazardly delete a song from one of these folders, there are 2 additional copies of the song. However, when I go back to the i tunes display, I may find a little "!" mark next to the song which means that i tunes can no longer "find" the song in the location where it thinks it should be. I can go through and make a list of all of the songs in my i tunes and then "get Info" and identify the location of each and every song, write that down and then delete the song from the other folders but obviously, this would be very a very tedious and arduous task. I would have to do a "print screen" of all relevant folders, and go through each file to determine the exact location. I seem to remember having a problem with an excessive number of "!" marks way back when and somebody directed me to a tool that magically solved the problem. I wonder if that really happened? Does anyone have any suggestions?
