I am trying to combine 3 iTunes music libraries into one comprehensive one. However, I have three folders in three different places (two on my external hard drive, and on my laptop hard drive.) Is there a way to use automator to combine all of these and delete unnecessary files to the trash?
QUOTE Thanks

Right now I am using this set of actions:

1.)Find Finder Items:
Kind is Audio
2.)Get Folder Contents:
Repeat for Each SubFolder
3.)Find Finder Items:
Kind is Audio
4.)Copy Finder Items:
Specified Folder
