I have recently decided to upgrade to windows 8 and with it clean out all the music in my itunes media collection and start fresh.

Before I start to download my purcharsed iCloud music or import my cds I set my media folder location to be "c:\users\username\my music\"

and the below images show the outcome, which seems like its a bug and it annoys me.

so now i have a folder called music inside the my music folder in my users profile, this seems really stupid i hope its a bug that gets fixed


if i set it as the below then all the music artists folder names appear straight under c:\users\username\




Why does the extra \music\ folder get added ?!?!!??? it just makes it messy.

iTunes, Windows 8, media folder location of itunes
