    I tunes imported vid files that I had on my hd last year, now, I decided that I didn't want these in itunes, so I deleted them from itunes. I then burned all of these files to a dvd and then deleted them from my downloads folder where they were always kept. Today I noticed that deep within itunes, there is a folder called itunes music and in that folder there is a sub folder called movies, where I discovered duplicates of the vid files I had previously deleted from my downloads folder which were imported by itunes last year. I'm shocked! I didn't know this could happen in itunes! Has anyone else had this happen?

    no it didnt. theres an option in iTunes preferences to not copy files to your library when you add them. its useful for keeping your iTunes library all in one place so songs and video dont suddenly stop working when you move them in the Finder.
