Organize the iTunes folder in Finder with iTunes 9

I had thought that, too. But all the folders now just contained orphaned .jpg, .txt and, most importantly, .pdf files which I then had to manually re-add (well, at least the .pdfs) to the respective music folders. These of course live now in a folder called "Music".

Organize the iTunes folder in Finder with iTunes 9

You're right, it was all just jpg files (checked with grep for mp3 and m4a). For some reasons, all my PDF files did end up in the right places, but only Apple-supplied ones showed up in iTunes.

For the record, there were 350 freaking folders left and I only had 500 albums. I was expecting some stuff to be left behind from others' comments, but not this much.

For people who have the same problem as me, I think it's okay to junk those folders. Be careful you don't erase the vital folders now actually holding your stuff though. They are:

Audiobooks, Automatically Add to iTunes, iPod Games (only if you own a scroll wheel iPod), Music, Movies, Podcasts, and TV Shows. There are three more folders if you own an iPhone/iPod Touch: Mobile Applications, Ringtones, and Voice Memos.
