11. Decide which button to click based on which files you want to keep

Once completed check your ITunes is now as you planned and delete the extra folders when you are happy that everything is copied correctly.
It is best to wait a few days before deleting the old folders in case something has been missed in error. If you want right click on each folder and rename, I usually add “DELETE ME ON 7 DAYS” to the end of the folder name.
