You underestimate my ignorance. I'll probably need expanded guidance. As to where I let it, on the install, it asked where did I want to obtain files and I sent it to the file on my desktop that contained the music files that I had transferred over from my office computer. There may have been a 'and when you finish those, search for other files' box checked but I didn't see it.
Curiously, we're up to 52, 880 and counting as we speak. (Out of a 38,000 folder). And, the files that are scrolling in the little add window at the base of the app appear to be files that are in the music folder. (Beatles, Joni Mitchell, etc).
Is there an easy way to delete files from the MM data base based on path?

If you've got your whole library listed, and have "location" as a column, you can just sort the entire library by that column, and then select and delete from the library (not computer, in my case, since I wanted the backups!) the duplicates I didn't want to see.
No doubt there are other ways of doing this, but I found this quick and easy.
