Anyone else noticed this? I think it may have happened in the recent update to itunes.
It used to be that when i selected an album or track from inside iTunes, and deleted it, it would also trash the actual MP3 files from my Mac. But now, confusingly, it only removes the album from iTunes, i have to manually find the MP3 folder and remove those too.
Anyone know a way around this?

Bump, let me rephrase
It used to be, deleting album inside of iTunes prompts the user about deleting the actual MP3 files/albums.
But now it doesnt do it, it just deletes the album from the iTunes library but i still have to go and find the folder and delete it manually

I think that has been the default behavior for a while now. I dont know why.
If you press alt delete you get the prompt to delete the filesMember of the Month September 2008 & August 2012 | Found advice useful? – use the rep system

I still get the prompt when I delete tracks or groups of tracks *from the iTunes Library.*
If I'm in a playlist, of course, then the tracks aren't really deleted at all, so no need for the prompt. So be sure you are actually in the main iTunes Music Library when trying to delete tracks.

Yeah i've just tried your suggestions, still not getting it to do it, it prompts me about removing from library, but not the files. Even with Alt combination.
